Strait Regional School Board Celebrates Mi'kmaq History Month 2014
Photo excerpt from the Nova Scotia Office of Aboriginal Affairs website
Each October, school communities focus on the history, culture and achievements of the Mi’kmaq community. This is also an opportune time for each of us to reflect on our own understanding of the contributions and traditions of the Mi’kmaq community.
