Abegweit First Nation is a small Mi’kmaq band that was established in 1972 located in eastern PEI. Abegweit First Nation is a unique band that consists of 3 reserves: Morell Rear Reserve #2, Rocky Point Reserve #3, and Scotchfort Reserve #4 that are all separated geographically.

Abegweit First Nation was created as a response to a conflict concerning the Council of the Lennox Island First Nation. The distance from Rocky Point, Scotchfort, and Morell Reserves, to Lennox Island also played a significant factor in this, as members of these communities were not always able to attend Band functions or meetings. As well, there was a significant lack of communication between the Lennox Island Band Council and other members of the Band. This led the Scotchfort and Morell Reserves to consider creating a separate band so they could “have their own Council and conduct their own affairs.”
