Nova Scotia is facing unprecedented opportunities, including shipbuilding, renewable energy projects and the Maritime Link. The province wants to ensure that aboriginal people play a part in those projects and is working to help those groups particularly young aboriginal people prepare for the future.
Premier Darrell Dexter, who is also Minister of Aboriginal Affairs, marked the occasion at a summer solstice sunrise ceremony at White Point Beach Resort in Hunt's Point. The event was hosted by Acadia First Nation communities and led by Elder Todd Labrador.
Traditionally, the summer solstice is the day on which many aboriginal communities celebrate their cultural and spiritual beliefs.
"The Mi'kmaq people play a tremendous role in the cultural, economic and social well being of Nova Scotia," said Premier Dexter. "The province enjoys a strong and open relationship with the aboriginal community here, and we are continuing to work with our aboriginal partners to create jobs and build stronger communities for First Nations in Nova Scotia an outcome that benefits the entire province."
Activities are being held across the province today in honour of National Aboriginal Day. The event at White Point Beach Lodge includes a Mi'Kmaw Village Lunch Experience, an artists' showcase, a traditional wigwam display and presentations on Kejimkujik's petroglyphs and discoveries at Port Joli.
National Aboriginal Day was first proclaimed in 1996 by former Gov. Gen. Romeo LeBlanc and is held on the summer solstice, the longest day of the year and the first day of summer. Adidas Prophere Story
