Acadian

 

From here

A 1750 account of Swedish botanist Peter Kalm, or the 18th-century letters of the Abbé Pierre Antoine Simon Maillard, may be the basis for this illustration. The artist shows a Mi’kmaq man with light hair, European features, and fictionalized accoutrements. From an engraving published in an encyclopedia by J. Grasset St. Saveur, 1796.
