Welcome / Epjilassi! We look forward to meeting you and invite you in to come learn and explore our Mi'kmaq Culture, past to present with us!
Mi'kmaq Heritage Path Tour
Guests are immersed into the Mi'kmaq culture at Elsipogtog, First Nation, New Brunswick for 2.25 hours with this one of a kind experience! After a traditional greeting, guests will enter the community raised teepee for a smudging ceremony along with teachings and insights that will help connect the past to the present cultural ways and customs. After this enlightening and significant introduction, guests are led by one of the interpretive knowledge keepers into the natural, forested Heritage Path where they will learn about traditional and time honored ways of using Mother Nature’s gifts and medicines for a better self and community. This 2023 season will see guests experiencing our authentically constructed wigwam, longhouse and sweatlodge made by our local elder and knowledge keeper. Guests will be able to step inside and feel how life would have been like back in ancestral times!
The last part of the Heritage Path journey takes place in the Cultural Center where guests have a safe space to ask any and all questions they may have about the Mi'kmaq culture, in order to further their understanding of the true way of life at Elsipogtog, New Brunswick. Guests will leave enriched by a deeper understanding and connection to the cultural teachings and ways of the Mi’kmaq!
