The Miawpukek First Nation government have revived the historical name and have replaced "Conne River" with "Miawpukek" in most of its own references to the community.
Miawpukek First Nation is a Mi'kmaq First Nation in Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada, with a registered population of 862 living on-reserve as of March 2013, with another 2,066 living off-reserve. Since 1985, the community has renewed its traditional culture, which had been put on hold, after the exile of Saqamaw Geodol.
A favourite attraction for visitors from near and far is its Annual Powwow, started in 1995 and held every year.
