The general public is cordially invited to attend a Talking Circle on “The State of the Waters and Pollution Concerns in the Port au Port – Bay St. George Region.” The event will be held at the Port au Port East Town Hall starting 7 pm on Sunday, November 12th, 2017.
A Talking Circle is a traditional way used by first nations to solve problems and is very effective in removing barriers and allowing people to freely express themselves. It provides a means for people to connect and search for new directions, make amends, right the wrongs and establish new pathways for tomorrow.
As Indigenous peoples, First Nations recognize the sacredness of water, the interconnectedness of all life and the importance of protecting water from pollution, drought and waste.
This Circle will be facilitated by Mi’kmaq cultural leaders and is supported by Qalipu First Nation, traditional Mi’kmaq people and the Port au Port Bay Fishery Committee.
A special invitation to attend and participate in this event is extended to the general public and municipal, provincial and federal government representatives.
