The debate surrounding Newfoundland patriotism is one that few have studied, especially with regard to its political implications. While some scholars would argue that the post-Confederation Newfoundland identity is based on a historical nationalist sentiment, others would suggest that it is instead based in a deep-seeded sense of patriotism. This article explores the role of nepotism, reciprocity, and collective goods and entities in promoting patriotism while examining the strength of that patriotism among 16 young Newfoundlanders. The evidence suggests that the majority of those interviewed view their identity as rooted in patriotism rather than nationalism.
