We talk a lot about a bilingual province, about language duality in New Brunswick, but there are cultures much older that deserve to be recognized, celebrated and learned about.
And here’s your chance!
On March 16, there is an all-day event taking place in the Currie Centre on UNB campus: the 1st Annual Mawio’mi / Siqonawsultipon (Powwow), presented by UNB’s Mi’kmaq/Wolastoqey Centre. My guests today are David Perley (Director, MWC) and Imelda Perley (UNB’s Elder-in-residence). They described the work of the well-established centre (formerly the Mi’kmaq/Maliseet Institute, MMI), the need for better education about the native heritage of New Brunswick, and the great celebration of story, music and dance that will be at the Powwow.
The event is free and open to everyone!
