Metepenagiag’s representation and interpretation of the Mi’kmaq culture is excellent, and it just got even better – you can now sleep in a traditional tipi. Once you arrive at the Heritage Park, you will be given a tour of the park and then you’ll be taken to your traditional accommodations.
You’ll be assigned a tipi for the night and staff will be on hand to assist with the activities around the campfire and lead the storytelling. Ancient Mi'kmaq culture has existed at its life source for over 3,000 years, so there are a lot of stories to tell! Sleeping under the stars, in the fresh air, surrounded by such a rich history is sure to take your understanding and appreciation of the culture to a whole new level. Not to mention, you’ll be disconnected from the noise of everyday life, and at peace with nature, making it a truly spiritual experience.
