The two peoples known to white settlers as 'Montagnais' and 'Naskapi' were actually members of the same people, Innu. Living in different areas and having different manner of dress, they were dealt with separately by the colonizing Europeans, but they have always considered themselves one nation. There are about 15,000 Innu all told in Labrador and Quebec.
