October is Mi’Kmaq History Month in Nova Scotia. We’re incredibly proud to celebrate and honour this rich culture of our area. We’ll be teaming up with members of Acadia First Nation , to present a unique weekend here at the beach.
Please join us as we honour more than 10,000 years of Indigenous Peoples presence, our neighbours and friends.
Hope you’ll come along, joining us here in Kespukwitk.
Our Mawimoi will include drumming, roasting luskinikn, art showcase and more.
While you are here, for the weekend, or anytime, linger in the Lounge to discover a pair of maple carved paddles by Ed Benham. Count and marvel at the eagles etched beautifully into the moose antler by Bucky Moore by the Front Desk. Pause and take in the meaning that’s inspired the paintings hung on our walls by Melissa Labrador. Touch the handmade birch bark bowl by canoe builder Todd Labrador, and stroll along the pathway to appreciate his legacy within our 90th Anniversary Sculpture Show, Sea’spired, entitled ‘Our Spirits Remain’ petroglyph. Drop by the Gift Shop and you’ll discover works by many local Mi’Kmaq artists too.
Be sure to explore our area’s Mi’Kmaq heritage and culture at one of our many sites including:
Kejimkujik National Park and National Historic Site of Canada, don’t miss the encampment and petroglyphs
Queens County Museum in Liverpool
