If you try searching for Mi'kmaq (pronounced mig' ma) and not Mic Mac you
will find more.

Is your wife looking for an 1812 impression?
As Kevin's website states:
"The First Nations People of Nova Scotia are known as the Mi'kmaq. At the
time of first contact with European explorers in the 16th and 17th centuries
the Mi'kmaq lived in the region now known as the Maritime provinces and the
Gaspé peninsula. Later they also settled in New England and Newfoundland. "
and seems to be a 16/17th C impression.
Thus an 1812 impression would be different?!?!?
