Why is Kejimkujik a National Park?

I have explored the reasons why Kejimkujik is considered a National Park and National Historic Site. I also explain why Kejimkujik National Park is an important part of history and somewhere we should all visit.

What was the most interesting thing you learned about your topic?

The most interesting thing is how the Mi'kmaq used the land but did not abuse it. The signs they left behind tell the story of how they lived.

What important lessons have you learned that you want to share with other Canadians?

I have learned that Kejimkujik is a really cool place to learn about the Mi'kmaq and discover how the land was used through the years.

How would you compare your life today to the lives of those studied in your project?

I think that my life today is a lot easier than the Mi'kmaq. They had to travel throughout the seasons and lived in very different homes. They had to hunt and gather or make everything they needed to survive. There were no stores to buy things.
