The objective of the culture program at the Alaqsite’w Gitpu School is to learn, implement and promote our Mi’gmaq heritage. Students can expect to utilize ancestral life skills for survival following seasonal traditions through hands-on Mi’gmaq art forms. Students identify plants and animals, compare past and present customs of the Mi’gmaq, and share and exchange acquired knowledge with family members.
The program gives students from Nursery to Middle school the opportunity to grasp traditional concepts and life skills. The teachings acquired are vital to the survival of our Mi’gmaq culture.
