Sitansisk

Sitansisk | AboriginalLinks LiensAutochtones | Scoop.it

"Sitansisk is an uplifting documentary film that uses “Christmas Lights” as an expression for the spiritual, cultural, social, political, and economic awakening of an aboriginal people in Fredericton, New Brunswick, Canada.

 

This powerful, documentary film explores the “Festival of Lights,” an event that takes place in the Wolastuk / Maliseet community of Sitansisk (St. Mary's First Nation). What started in the 1990’s with a few individuals putting up Christmas lights on their houses has become a large community-wide event that represents a spirit of generosity, hope and a brighter future for the Maliseet people and their culture."

Stone flakes found during archaeological dig in Moncton - New Brunswick - CBC News

Stone flakes found during archaeological dig in Moncton - New Brunswick - CBC News | AboriginalLinks LiensAutochtones | Scoop.it

"Archaeologists searching for First Nations artifacts at the Moncton airport are wrapping up their dig.

The work was being done to preserve any artifacts before a new runway at the airport is built.

Archaeologists dug close to 700 holes looking for evidence that aboriginal people used the area hundreds of years ago.

Albert Ferguson, the manager of archaeological services for the provincial government, said in three of those holes they found a total of seven stone flakes, indicating aboriginal people were using stone tools in the area.

...

He estimates the flakes to be about 600 years old. The seven flakes will be stored in Fredericton. "

New Brunswick Heritage Online Newsletter: Beaded Maliseet Cap Returns to Fredericton Region Museum

New Brunswick Heritage Online Newsletter: Beaded Maliseet Cap Returns to Fredericton Region Museum | AboriginalLinks LiensAutochtones | Scoop.it

On June 20th, 2012, the Fredericton Region Museum received a forty-pound crate, heavily padded and packaged with the utmost care –- in it was one of the museum’s most valuable yet mysterious artifacts: A blue beaded Maliseet cap. The cap was returning from the Canadian Conservation Institute, where it had been undergoing extensive conservation work since April of 2009.

 

The headpiece first arrived at the museum many years ago, and was in poor condition –- its interior fabric was deteriorating, its colors were fading, and its top portion displayed a large tear. However, the sheer intricacy of its beadwork and its dazzling array of colors were enough to convince the C.C.I. of its value. The cap was accepted under a conservation grant, where the cost of its repairs and refurbishment were to be covered by the Institute itself. Upon its return, the cap is truly a sight to behold –- restored to what conservators in Ottawa were able to discern was its original appearance, the cap’s bright colors and intricate beadwork make it a stunning addition to the Fredericton Region Museum’s already-extensive collection of native craft.
