Glooscap, an Abenaki word for “man from nothing” was the first human, created out of a bolt of lightning in the sand, and remains a great figure that appear in many of the Mi’kmaq myths.  The Centre offers an innovative multimedia presentation of the rich history of the Mi’kmaw people, as Glooscap guides you through their trials, tribulations and triumphs. Exhibits include ancient artifacts; stunning quillwork and beadwork; and a giant statue of the legendary Glooscap.
