I seems that my research keeps going on, as usually thanks to the Internet. Looking here and there, I have found a website where Innu people speak about their language, which they call Innu-aimun. In that site they teach it, they have some traditional tales, some links, and also some interesting maps with the placement of their villages.

I am a bit confused, because this map doesn’t match with that other one from the same site, where they show all the dialects of Innu-aimun:

I don’t know if they are different communities, or what. I will have to look for more information. For example, this article where they have a map created with Google Earth which a layer that shows all their villages in Canada.

We usually look at the world globe with the Ecuador line in front of our eyes. In the same way, we use to represent the maps in two dimensions. But if what you want is to take a journey all around the world more or less through the
arctic cercle line
, and having as a reference the North Pole, there is a much more interesting perspective:
