This month, explore Mi’kmaq culture, history and values

Mi'kmaw communities in Nova Scotia celebrate Mi'kmaq History Month

"As Mi'kmaq, we are proud of our history and culture. That is why Mi'kmaw communities throughout Nova Scotia proudly celebrate Mi'kmaq History Month and frequently host local powwows that showcase our music, food, dance, storytelling, beautiful regalia and crafts. These family-friendly gatherings, which are open to people of all ages, cultures and beliefs, are an opportunity to build bridges of understanding and friendship and to challenge many of the myths and misconceptions that still beset our people."
