Mi’kmawe’l Tan Teli-kina’muemk Available

Over the past few years, the Mi’kmawey Debert Cultural Centre project, along with the Elders’ Advisory Council and key community experts, has been working on a curriculum resource for educators and the general public. With three primary subject areas: Welo’lti’mk (Healing), Kejitasimkewey Kiskuk (Contemporary Issues), and Netukulimk (Economic, Social, and Political Life), the book shares important information about the Mi’kmaq, as well as teaching strategies and various activities for grades Primary to Grade 9. This project would not have been possible if not for the hard work and determination of Melody Martin-Googoo (Millbrook First Nation/Chignecto Central Regional School Board) and the Elders, educators and experts who met time and again to discuss, debate and celebrate Mi’kmaw history, culture and knowledge.

A full copy of the resource is available online, here. Supplementary materials are available here.

Leah Rosenmeier (MDCC Research and Interpretation Specialist) and Melody Martin-Googoo (Education Consultant) helped to bring together a great group of Mi'kmaw Elders and educators to create this resource.
