October 1st is Treaty Day and the first day of Mi’gmaq History Month. Listuguj Education buildings will be closed on October 3rd to observe Treaty Day.
Treaty Day commemorates the signing and significance of the Peace and Friendship Treaties of the 1700s. These nation-to-nation agreements guarantee our right to trade, fish, and hunt while maintaining peaceful relationships. The Alaqsite'w Gitpu School is planning activities throughout the month for our students to learn more about our treaties and Mi'gmaq history. Stay tuned!
