The Mi’kmaq people of the Atlantic provinces of New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island, Nova Scotia and Newfoundland flourished in the land Mi’kma’ki. From their winter hunting grounds inland to the summer shores and even into the ocean, they built a Nation by living in balance with nature. Explore how this balance may have looked and why it is a desirable goal to achieve today.
Prior to the landing of European settlers in what is now called New Brunswick, thriving cultures existed for thousands of years which lived in harmony with the land and the life that resided on it. Survival on this land depended on ingenuity and knowledge wrought from a sometimes harsh and unforgiving environment.
Passed down through the generations were the spoken teachings that served as lessons to the younger generations to ensure their survival into the future. Despite today’s world of modern conveniences and industrialization, respect and protection of the land is a way of life still followed today in every aboriginal community across Canada.
