TWO NATIONAL HISTORIC SITES

We the Mi’kmaq of Metepenagiag have lived in this place since time immemorial. We have always known this. It has been handed down to us through generations of oral history. Our people have lived on this land, a vibrant and spiritual life, and inseparable from Mother Earth.

We have fished and hunted, built vessels for transportation, traded to the far reaches of the earth, spoke our language, raised children, buried our dead and celebrated the new seasons with reverence and respect. We are a communal people – self sufficient, steady, proud. Through all adversity of time, we have endured.

Hello:
My name is Jarvis Googoo and I am originally from We’koqma’q First Nation. I am the Director of the Atlantic Indigenous Economic Development Integrated Research Program (AIEDIRP) with the Atlantic Policy Congress of First Nations Chiefs Secretariat (APC). AIEDIRP’s main purpose is to work with Indigenous communities to improve the knowledge base concerning Atlantic Indigenous economic development in order to improve the lives of Indigenous people in the region.
One of ways we are currently doing this is via promotion of Atlantic Indigenous Tourism. In 2022-2023, AIEDIRP commissioned a study (undertaken by BDO Canada) to study Indigenous tourism in our region. This study was finalized on July 31. We held a publicly/promotional media event for it on October 25 at the Millbrook Cultural and Heritage Centre. We hosted another one on January 23 at the Elsipogtog Mi’kmaq Cultural Centre.
On Friday, March 8, we will be hosting a presentation on the Atlantic Indigenous Tourism study at the Metepenagiag Heritage Park. This will begin at 10:00 a.m. followed by a session for questions, comments, feedback, and shared ideas. Afterwards, a lunch will be provided.
To help us with registration and catering numbers, please let Lois Daye (AIEDIRP Admin Assistant) know if you will be attending at: lois.daye@apcfnc.ca 
Wela’lin,
Jarvis Googoo
