Ta'n me'j Tel'keknuo'ltiek:
How Unique We Still Are

Opening November 9, 2021

Ta'n me'j Tel'keknuo'ltiek: How Unique We Still Arereflects how Mi’kmaw people remain connected to the lands and waters of Mi’kma’ki. This exhibit offers a platform for Mi’kmaw people to express their continued experiences with an understanding of the lands and the waters of Mi’kma’ki. Mi’kmaw single-word concepts are represented through personal testimony and histories of individual Mi’kmaw people, featured objects, artifacts, images and symbolic artwork. These experiences and understandings are rooted in cultural expressions that connect past, present and future in this place. 

Virtual field trips 

We miss field trips too. Let us help teach some of our important provincial stories through our curriculum-based virtual programs brought into your classroom online. 

Maritime Museum of the Atlantic

Located in the heart of Halifax’s historic waterfront, there’s no better place to immerse yourself in Nova Scotia’s rich maritime heritage than the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic.

From small craft boatbuilding to World War Convoys, the Days of Sail to the Age of Steam, the Titanic to the Halifax Explosion, you’ll discover the stories, events and people that have come to define this province and its relationship with the sea.
