Description

Discover the ancient history of Nova Scotia’s first people in the timeless landscape of Kejimkujik National Park and National Historic Site.  Kejimkujik is considered a “cultural landscape” because it is a place which showcases the culture, lifestyle and beliefs of the Mi’kmaq.   Mi’kmaq people have inhabited Nova Scotia for at least 10,000 years and archeological research has confirmed inhabitation of Kejimkujik for at least 5,000 years.

 

At Kejimkujik visitors can discover the culture of the Mi’kmaq people through programs and activities delivered by Mi’kmaw interpreters.    Experience North America’s largest collection of aboriginal rock art by participating in a guided tour of Kejimkujik’s petroglyphs. Traditional knowledge of the natural environment allowed Mi'kmaq people to practice sustainable approaches to resource use for thousands of years.
