Mi’kmaq History Month and Treaty Day

October 1st is Treaty Day which marks the beginning of Mi’kmaq History Month in Nova Scotia as proclaimed in 1993 by then Premier John Savage and Kji-Saqmaw Ben Sylliboy of the Mi’kmaq Grand Council, or the Sante’ Mawio’mi.

Treaty Day is celebrated annually in recognition of the Treaties signed between the British Empire and the Mi’kmaq people. Mi’kmaq History Month is recognized in October as the official month to recognize and celebrate Mi’kmaq culture and heritage.

Together we can help increase our understanding of the province’s rich Mi’kmaq culture and fundamental contribution to this country.

We encourage our members to continue their learning during Mi’kmaq History Month and on an ongoing basis.
