Picture an ice-age landscape with mastodons, caribou, and giant beavers wandering over the tundra that covered Mi’kma’ki more than 11,000 years ago. Imagine communities of people who lived at the base of the Cobequid Mountains for more than a thousand years. This is the story of the Mi’kmawey Debert Interpretive Trail.
The interpretive panels located along the trail share the ever-growing story of the ancestral Debert sites.
Featuring the artwork of Dozay Christmas, the panels were created by the Mi’kmawey Debert Elders’ Advisory Council, who guide the overall development of the Mi’kmawey Debert Cultural Centre. The trail abounds with wild flowers, tall trees and running streams of today’s warmer climate and travels through moderate terrain and diverse forest cover.
