The History and Background of Mi’kmaq (Mic Mac) Hockey Sticks

The Mi’kmaq Indians are renowned for their woodcarving abilities. During the winter seasons, they played a game called Oochamkunutk with carved alder sticks (similar to a walking stick). These were made from the roots of trees and resembled loosely what we now today refer to as a hockey stick. The first account of the Mi’kmaqs playing hockey is in 1749.

Around the same time, Canada began to receive a large number of immigrants from the British Commonwealth. The Irish settlers and soldiers who came to Nova Scotia in the 18th century brought along the game of Hurley, which today is the Gaelic game of Hurling. It is similar in fashion to the game of field hockey that is played currently in North America and the world.

As the two cultures interacted, the Mi’kmaq adapted their game of Oochamkunutk to a game called Alchamadijk, while the Irish and the British immigrants played the same game and called it HOCKEY. The best sticks were made by the Mi’kmaq carvers who used hornbeam, which was also called Ironwood due to its strength and durability. The ideal trees had exposed roots that grew naturally from the trunk in the angle of the stick blade. These were known as “HOCKEY ROOTS”. Better were the second generation trees that had the added benefit of some flex from being younger.

The sticks went on to be widely popular and were identified by the name on the blade, not on the shaft as sticks are branded today. Hockey players would head down to the Saturday market in the late 1920’s to buy their sticks for 25 or 50 cents, heading down early to get the best of the lot. As well, the Starr Company started to produce a line of sticks named Mic-Mac which saw success especially in the the Eaton’s catalogue. The Mic Mac name saw huge success in the NHL and amateur leagues for a long time, becoming THE stick to use. Over time, with new companies and technologies coming into the marketplace, the Mic Mac brand was not kept up and disappeared from hockey sticks. Today, Mic-Mac Hockey is based on reviving the history and legacy of the Mic-Mac name that is revered in the game, and combining it with today’s technology to give the best performance. Mic Mac Hockey is truly a Canadian hockey iconic heritage brand.

Adapted from “The Stick: A history, a celebration, an elegy” by Bruce Dowbiggin published by Macfarlane, Walter & Ross (2002).
