Providing authentic Indigenous experiences in the Greater Saint John area to help foster an understanding of Indigenous culture through storytelling.

WHERE TO FIND US IN 2022!

This September and October, we are exited to partner with #ExploreNB and Wasted Day Brewing to be in Uptown Saint John. We will be just steps from cruise ship berths, amazing restaurants, and harbour passage, where we will be offering our Indigenous Storytelling Walk. For most of September we will be in the Container Village offering tours and Indigenous products, and in October we will be at Wasted Day Brewing on cruise ship days offering the same.

 

We are pleased to continue offering programs with Go Fundy Events and the Fundy Trail parkway, and you can reach out for any group bookings.

Experiences

Indigenous Storytelling Walk

(Uptown Saint John, 2 hours)

Indigenous influence in the Saint John area is largely overlooked.  Prior to the establishment of Canada’s oldest incorporated city, a flourishing culture already existed, the Wolastoqiyik. 

 

Menahwesk: A Meeting Place

(Place Fort La Tour, 1 hour)

When Samuel-de-Champlain first arrived in the Saint John harbor he was met by the Indigenous inhabitants of the village of Ouigoudy that called the Saint John  river their home.   

Wandering & Wondering

(Fundy Trail Parkway, 1 hour)

The Mi’kmaq people of the Atlantic provinces of New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island, Nova Scotia and Newfoundland flourished in the land Mi’kma’ki.  From their winter hunting grounds inland to the summer shores and even into the ocean, they built a Nation by living in balance with nature.  Explore how this balance may have looked and why it is a desirable goal to achieve today.
