Mi’kmaq Culture

The Mi’kmaq have lived in this region for ten thousand years and their culture continues to thrive and enrich us. Discover traditions that have been passed down over hundreds of years. Immerse yourself in their story with a smudging ceremony. Listen to tales by Mi’kmaq leaders. Find a warm P’jilasi (Welcome) along with a millennium of culture and customs within our Island’s five First Nations communities.
