Best Answer

Shawanadithit was the last of the Beothuk Indians. The beothuks were a semi-nomadic group of people who lived along the coast of Newfoundland (southern) and hunted caribou. They were the hunted too, though. English and French fought over the Beothuk's
territories and killed many of them. Shawnadithit was the last of these natives. She died of tuberculosis in 1829.
