We began Mi’gmaq history month with two wonderful celebrations, one at the Alaqsite’w Gitpu School and the other at Sugarloaf Senior High School.
Both schools, in the spirit of reconciliation, took the time to recognize the importance of Treaty Day, with many in attendance wearing orange shirts to honour residential school survivors. Both events were capped off with delicious meals made with moose meat; donated by two of our local students.
This month the Listuguj Mi’gmaq government hosted an Open House. It was held on October 18th, at the Listuguj Community Development Center.
We were happy to have many of our community members come check out and learn about the programs and services of the LMG; as well as some new initiatives that are in the works.
We will have more opportunities for people to come out and be a part of the discussion.
