ANNOUNCEMENTS Friday, October 17, 2014
Here is your Mi’kmaq History month fact of the day. Glooscap, the first human, was created out of a bolt of lightning in the sand and remains a figure that appears in many of the Mi’kmaw legends. These legends are stories that are passed down from generation to generation and tell of the Mi’kmaw culture.
