Here is your Mi’kmaq History month fact of the day. Look to Bear to model Courage, which is the fourth sacred teaching. Courage is the ability to face danger, fear or changes with confidence and bravery. The bear represents courage because of strength and natural ability to overcome challenges. A mother bear will stand against a much larger threat to protect her cubs.

In doing so, they qualify to win one of five $500 scholarships in Atlantic Canada and one of three National grand prizes of up to $5,000.
Atlantic’s regional winners will be chosen by a panel of African Canadian RBC Atlantic staff and the national winners will be selected by an external panel comprised of African Canadian business and community leaders. There are two Atlantic Canadian representatives on the national panel: Judge Corrine Sparks of Halifax, and Ralph Thomas of Saint John, NB.
Essays must be submitted by December 5, 2014 and winners will be announced in early February in time for 2015 Black History Month.
