If you are an educator who wants to learn more about how to incorporate Mi’kmaq history and culture into your classroom and your school then this conference is just what you’ve been looking for!
This is a two day conference featuring Mi’kmaw presenters from all over NS that will connect you with knowledge and resources for teaching about traditional land use, values, spiritual beliefs, art, history, food, music and oral tradition. Participants will also have the opportunity to experience Mi’kmaq culture with all their senses. Your eyes will be dazzled by Mi’kmaw dancing, your ears and hearts will feel the connection to the drum, you will taste an array of wild foods, have the opportunity to participate in a sweatlodge ceremony, talking circle, and a nature walk. You will smell the sweetgrass each morning when we smudge. All teachers are also encouraged to bring in a flash drive with resources/lesson plans they would like to share and at the end everyone will go home with a flash drive full of new information, resources and lesson ideas.
The cost is $175 and covers both days. The conference will be held at the Millbrook’s recently opened Hampton INN located in the Power Centre. Take Exit 13A on HWY 102 and the Hampton Inn is located right next to Legend’s Bingo.
There are 20 rooms set aside for conference participants at the conference rate of $119/night. If you would like to reserve a room call the Hampton Inn (902) 843-4343 and be sure to let them know you are attending the conference.
