Kejimkujik National Park: History in Stone - Nova Scotia, Canada
For ten thousand years, this rugged, sea-swept peninsula has been home to the Aboriginal people. Mi’kmaq and First Nations people have enriched this province with their legends, art, music, spirituality, history, and language.
The Mi’kmaq legends of mythic hero-god Glooscap give meaning to the extraordinary geography of this place. It was a meeting between Glooscap and a mighty whale that created the awesome tides of the Bay of Fundy, for instance. Visit the 18th century Mi’kmaq petroglyphs in Kejimkujik National Park and National Historic Site and embrace the spirit of this founding culture and its heritage as you tour Nova Scotia.
