Wanted: Your Indigenous Art Work


The Ktaqmkuk Mi’kmaq Museum in St. George’s is preparing to open for the season and would love to showcase local traditional art work in their gift shop.

If you’re an artist with work to sell, please contact St. George’s Indian Band Chief Marlene Farrell at (709) 647-3293 or email marlene.farrell@hotmail.com

Have you visited the museum yet?

Housed in a fully restored 19th century courthouse, this museum is a must-see.  As you read the plaque text you’ll learn about our province’s Mi’kmaq history.  While you’re there, get your picture taken inside a reproduction of a Trapper’s Lodge, beside Mattie Mitchell, a world renowned Mi’kmaw guide, or in front of the scale model replica of a 5-meter-long ocean going canoe that the Mi’kmaq used to travel to our island.

Activities will be planned for the summer.  Keep an eye on their website here: http://www.sgibnl.ca/ktaqmkuk-mikmaw-cultural-historic-museum-newfoundland/
