Diversity on display
The Mi'kmaq Confederacy of PEI has created a series of nine panels highlighting the history and culture of the Mi'kmaq of PEI, from 12,000 years ago to today. Featuring personal photographs, informative text, and beautiful PEI scenery, the panels were created as a companion piece to the Confederacy's N’in na L’nu: The Mi'kmaq of PEI wigwam exhibit. Each of the three sets of three panels highlights a different aspect of Mi'kmaq life on PEI: “Before Long Ago,” “Life Marches On,” and “Seizing the Future.”
The Mi'kmaq panel exhibit will be on display in Shaw Building North for the remainder of November 2014, to complement the Mi'kmaq Confederacy of PEI’s Mi'kmaq Cultural Workshop, being held in partnership with the Public Service Commission Diversity Program and the Aboriginal Affairs Secretariat.
“The Aboriginal Affairs Secretariat is pleased to work with Mi'kmaq Confederacy of PEI to increase awareness of Mi'kmaq culture and history within PEI's public service,” said Andrew Ramsay, policy analyst with the Secretariat.
