Quill Work on Birch Bark

Quill work is an ancient artwork that inspired the Mi’kmaq, or the porcupine people, to create such beautiful pieces of art that are now kept in museums all over the world for their beauty and timeless creativity.

Bannock & Clams In The Sand

With the guidance of traditional teachers and storytellers, you will get to experience preparing your own Bannock (traditionally made bread) that is cooked in the sand

The Beat of the Drum

Does the drum resonate in your heart when you hear it? If so, it’s your time to come to Lennox Island and learn the teachings of the drum as you weave together your very own moose hide drum to take home with you.

Cultural Engagement Experiences

Lennox Island is the place to go for unique experiences that you will not get anywhere else! With each of these opportunities, you will learn more about the Mi’kmaq culture by making artwork, traditional food, creating one of our traditional ceremonial pieces like the rattle, as well as being able to hear the stories by our gifted teachers and storytellers, crafters, and cooks. What better way to spend the day than to learn a new skill first hand from one of our resilient creative Mi’kmaq community members.

Create memories and find what you were missing.
