Fort Folly youth are gaining a greater understanding about their native heritage, thanks to a renowned Mi’kmaq elder who continues to share his knowledge with the youngsters at the First Nations reserve every summer.
Together with University of New Brunswick Saint John professors Dr. John Johnson and Dr. Christopher Gray, the Natural Products Research Group looked into the benefits of a traditional medicinal plant used by the Eskasoni First Nation.
The Eskasoni would concoct a tea using cow parsnip to cure TB.
The provincial government and the Joint Economic Development Initiative (JEDI) have partnered to support community adult learning programs for Aboriginals in New Brunswick. The announcement was made today at St. Mary's First Nation.
The provincial government is investing $98,950 in JEDI to help develop partnerships and delivery of community adult learning services in the 15 First Nations communities in New Brunswick.
“The funding will help co-ordinate adult learning opportunities to maximize employment of Aboriginal people in New Brunswick,” said Post-Secondary Education, Training and Labour Minister Martine Coloumbe, “This partnership is an excellent way to support opportunities for Aboriginal people.”
Aboriginal communities in New Brunswick have won an unusual court injunction against the federal government that will prevent Ottawa from imposing drastic cuts to welfare rates for First Nations - at least for now.
Aboriginal Affairs and Northern Development Canada (AANDC) invested $10.3 million in the planning, design and construction of the new school. The 2,490 m2 Kindergarten to grade 8 school has 10 classrooms and includes a technology room, a gymnasium, a music room, a library, a kitchen and a cafeteria, as well as administrative space. The facility has the capacity to accommodate up to 268 students, providing capacity and facilities for enrolment growth.
SACKVILLE, N.B. — The Grand Council flag of the Mi’kmaq Nation was raised at Mount Allison University last Wednesday, Dec. 12 to show the university’s solidarity with the family and friends of Chris Metallic.
"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."
"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. "
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.
