October 1 is Treaty Day

October 1 is Treaty Day and the beginning of Mi’kmaq History Month in Nova Scotia.

Treaty Day commemorates the key role of treaties in the relationship between the Nova Scotia Mi’kmaq and the Crown. The annual ceremony reaffirms the historic presence of the Mi’kmaw who have occupied the land for thousands of years.

Treaty Day promotes public awareness of the Mi’kmaw culture and heritage. Celebrations will be held throughout the week to honour the important contributions and rich history of the Mi’kmaq people.
