Mi'kmaq History Month

 

 

Treaty Day, (October 1st) marks the beginning of Mi'kmaq History Month in Nova Scotia as proclaimed in 1993 by then Premier John Savage and Mi'kmaq Grand Chief Ben Sylliboy.

Its purpose is to promote public awareness about the Mi'kmaw culture and heritage for all citizens of Nova Scotia. A poster is produced and numerous events are organized throughout the month in recognition of Mi'kmaq History Month.

For more information visit the Mi’kmaq History Month Committee's website

Information and poster from: https://novascotia.ca/abor/office/what-we-do/public-education-and-awareness/mikmaq-history/

 

ABOUT THE 2017 POSTER
(click on the poster for a larger view)

Innovations and Legacies

The Mi’kmaq have lived in Mi’kma’ki for thousands of years. The knowledge that grew up over these many generations resulted in a sophisticated relationship with our homeland. The seasons, cycles, animals and plants of Mi’kma’ki are at the core of our culture and language.

Our expertise is based on a worldview of belonging to a place, knowing it, and protecting the way of life within it. Europeans knew little about Mi’kma’ki when they arrived here in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. Upon arrival, they saw the uniqueness of Mi’kmaw technology that was essential to living here.

This year we recognize some of these cultural innovations and celebrate legacies that continue to enrich our life today. There are many more to explore!

Gerald Gloade, the artist who created this year’s Mi’kmaq History Month poster, explains that, “Mi’kmaw knowledge grew over many generations resulting in a sophisticated relationship with the homeland – the seasons, cycles, animals and plants of Mi’kma’ki are at the core of our culture and language”.

Gloade captured this essence of Innovations and Legacies through a visual guide illustrating many examples of unique Mi’kmaw technology, providing a lasting contribution to today’s Canadian culture.

IMPORTANT NOTICE

Dear LCS Families,

We have new students who have life threatening allergies (anaphylaxis) to peanuts  and other nuts and therefore it is essential that we make our school allergy safe. 

In collaboration with the AVRSB School Nurse, we have learned the best way to reduce the risk of accidental exposure of allergens to these students is to respectfully ask for your co-operation as the parents/guardians within our LCS community to:

AVOID SENDING PEANUT BUTTER OR PRODUCTS WITH PEANUTS OR NUTS LISTED IN THE INGREDIENTS, EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATELY.

We realize that this request may pose an inconvenience for you when packing your child’s snack or lunch. However, we hope you will appreciate the seriousness of our situation and assist in our efforts to create as safe an environment as possible.  With your cooperation we can minimize the risk of a severe allergic reaction. In addition, our school cafeteria will no longer be selling items that contain nuts, such as peanut butter sandwiches or peanut butter cookies.

Included with this letter is some information about peanut allergies as well as things that you can teach your child in order to protect the health and safety of the students with the potentially life-threatening allergy.

Thank you in advance for your understanding and co-operation as we welcome our new students into our nut aware learning environment!

With warm regards,

Mrs. Shehata, Principal, LCS
