Saint Pierre and Miquelon

The tiny islands of Saint Pierre and Miquelon, with just over 6000 inhabitants, are a self-governing territory of France, located near the Canadian province of Newfoundland and Labrador. The islanders speak French, and largely claim descent from French Basque and Breton settlers. Basque was still spoken by some families on the islands until the mid-twentieth century. The islands’ annual Basque Festival features traditional Basque sports.
