Polish Heritage Month: A Virtual Celebration

Witamy! From early immigrants to Cape Breton in the first two decades of the twentieth century, through refugees of two world wars, war brides, and emigres fleeing communism, to a multitude of professionals, labourers, academics, and artists who have come from the lands of Poland to make a new homeland in Canada, the small but vibrant Polish Nova Scotian community has been making and continues to make significant contributions in all parts of this province.

Mawita’jik 2020: A Virtual Cultural Showcase

This year’s Mi’kmaw Native Friendship Centre Mawita’jik 2020 is being held on National Indigenous Peoples Day, June 21. This date marks the beginning of the summer solstice. Many Indigenous people have celebrated their culture and heritage on this day due to the significance of the summer solstice as the longest day of the year. This year, the event is being offered online as we all work to keep our communities safe. Instead of hosting a multi-day gathering, we present here, a sampling of some of the drumming, dancing, and storytelling performances that would have been showcased at this year’s Mawita’jik celebration for you to enjoy.
