Learning Mi’kmaq Perspectives to Protect our Environment for Future Generations: Earth Element
with Roger Lewis

Ta’n Weji-sqalia’teik, the Mi’kmaw exclusive form, “from where we sprouted” expresses the dynamic relationship between Mi’kmaq and their ancestral landscape.” The long tenure of human occupation activity, from 13,500 years (Sagiwe’kL’nuk – Ancient Ones) to (Kiskukewe’k L’nuk – Today’s People), the Mi’kmaq, living along all 42 principal rivers (and boundary landscapes) in this province comprises the vehicle through which Mi’kmaw culture and history was and continues to be transmitted. Roger Lewis is with Nova Scotia Museum’s Curator of Ethnology.

The Nova Scotia Environmental Network presents four talking circle sessions led by four esteemed Mi’kmaq teachers to build right relationships.
