Mi’kmaq Basket Making & Heritage Path Tour


Immerse yourself in traditional Mi’kmaq culture as you learn the fine art of basket making in Elsipogtog First Nation, New Brunswick. After a traditional greeting, you will head into the woods along the Heritage Path for a smudging ceremony before learning about the trees used for basket making.

You will also get to see a teepee made by the very same elders who will be your teachers. After an introduction to the materials and processes, you will make a nest basket under the guidance of the elders. As you work on your basket, you will learn some traditional Mi’kmaq ways and phrases.

By the end of the day, you will leave enriched by the teachings of the elders, carrying a basket that you yourself have woven.
