The Beothuk led by Nonosbawsut is a custom civilization by Colonialist Legacies.

This mod requires Brave New World.


The Beothuk[]

The Beothuk were an indigenous culture in Newfoundland, off the coast of northeastern Canada. The Beothuk culture originated in the sixteenth century, but its ancestors go back further still. Today, the Beothuk are extinct, as they fled their traditional hunting grounds and starved. The last Beothuk is believed to have died in 1829.


Nonosbawsut is the last known - indeed, the only known - leader of the Beothuk, leading a small group of Beothuk who lived near Red Indian Lake, in central Newfoundland. Though sometimes referred to as a chief, his position was more akin to that of a headman or simply a leader. He is known to have had at least two encounters with European expeditioners and fishermen, the last of which resulted in his death.

Dawn of Man[]

In the days before the coming of the white man, a splinter tribe of the Wabanaki found remnants of Viking technologies among the ruins of what would later be known as Newfoundland. Armed and empowered by these tools and relics, these people would build a new way of life and become known as the Beothuk. And they would be led by you, Nonosbawsut, the Great Red Chief!

At the dawn of the Colonial era, you, Nonosbawsut, refused the advances of the English. You chose to trust in the ways of the Beothuk, empowered by Viking metals, instead of caving to the pandering promises of a foreign people with foreign ways. When the English persisted and turned to violence in their eagerness for trade, you led your people away, into the darkness.

But now, O Nonosbawsut, is a new day for the Beothuk. The secrets of the past and the pathways of a new land lie open to us. We need a shrewd leader to protect us. To shape us, as with iron tools, into a civilization that will stand the test of time.

Introduction: Who are you? What are you doing here? Who sent you?

Introduction: We are the Beothuk, and our ways are our own. Leave us in peace, and we will think of you as friends.

Defeat: You have made a grave mistake.
