“As a Maliseet and one who has spent most of my academic career doing research on Maliseet history I can say that Ms. Pelletier has developed a deep knowledge of Mi’kmaq and Maliseet culture that comes from knowing intimately both the material and documentary history of the two peoples indigenous to this region.”

"I thought it too good to be true when a volunteer walked through the door of Kings County Museum and offered her wisdom and expertise in identifying our basket collection! However, we now have our collection documented, measured, photographed and identified thanks to Gaby Pelletier. She went about the task with quiet efficiency and left us with a wealth of knowledge. Many thanks, Gaby!"
“I am writing to officially thank-you for consulting with Kings Landing on the Pickard basket collection made by the Tomah family of Kingsclear. Your assistance allowed us to complete the exhibition for Old Government House requested by the Lieutenant-Governor. … Your expertise in First Nations people and basket making was a great contribution to our study."

“On behalf of the membership of York Sunbury Historical Society, I would like to extend our appreciation for the fine talk you gave on March 18 at Government House. As a result of your long-term interest and commitment to the study of the crafts of the Native Peoples of Eastern Canada … you displayed an exceptional degree of sensitivity to the feelings of your mixed audience that evening. It is not common for persons of the diverse backgrounds and interests of your audience to come away feeling satisfied that something is being done to bridge the multiple solitudes of Central New Brunswick.”

"Le musée est très fortune de son offre généreuse puisqu’elle s’est avéré une personne précieuse pour l’institution. Son expertise dans la culture amérindienne nous a été inestimable dans l’identification des artefacts mi’qmaq de notre collection."
