Then the Mi’kmaw Cultural Trade Show gives you the opportunity to participate in a variety of presentations from knowledge keepers who share their expertise on Mi'kmaw history, traditional crafts, games, foods, art, music, and more, demonstrating their skills and sharing their stories. Lunch break features a traditional meal buffet.
