ANNOUNCEMENTS Wednesday, October 29, 2014
Here is your Mi’kmaq History month fact of the day. The sixth sacred teaching is Truth, and is represented by the Turtle. Truth is to know and understand all the seven teachings, and to live by them every day. The Turtle understands, as you should, that the journey of life is as important as the destination. The turtle represents Truth because it is one of the oldest animals on our planet. The turtle is grounded, methodical, careful, and attentive to details, which are important qualities for those who speak the truth.

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.
