Description:

Connect with Mi'kmaw Culture

Connect with 10,000 years of Mi’kmaq culture and tradition with Acadia First Nation, surrounded by the pristine forest and freshwater of Kejimkujik National Park and National Historic Site, part of the UNESCO Southwest Nova Biosphere.

For a powerful story of people and nature, spiritual growth and well-being, meet at the birch bark wigwam, bound by spruce roots, by the edge of the lake canoed for thousands of years, to experience:
• Elders and storytellers share ancient artifacts illuminating their ancestor’s way of life this land thousands of years ago
• Take a guided walk to discover how the Mi’kmaq’s intimate knowledge of this land allowed them to thrive using food sources found in Kejimkujik.
• Through song and drumming, discover the language and the legends which helped to preserve and share the culture and the history of the Mi’kmaq through generations.
• Crafting a birch bark necklace with leather and beads to create a keepsake and discover how the Mi’kmaq used the resources available to them in this landscape for their day-to-day needs

Sitting around the campfire, enjoy roasting lu’sknikn, a traditional bread, over an open fire while sipping on blueberry tea, and discover why the Mi’kmaq called Kejimkujik home for thousands of years.
