Mi'kmaq heritage

I did my project on the Mi'kmaq heritage. I have a Mi'kmaq background in my family.




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

One of the most important things I learned was how the Mi'kmaq made their homes. Also how they hunted. And made their clothes.

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

One important lesson I learned is how the Mi'kmaq survived. Back when the Mi'kmaq didn't have stores to go to. The things they do now are way different then the things they did 12000 years ago.

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

Back 12000 years ago the mi'kmaq lived in wigwam now we live in wooden houses. The Mi'kmaq hunted while we can go to the store and buy food. Mi'kmaq made their clothes out of animal skins now our clothes are made of fabrics.
