7 Paddles

A project that was started to re-establish traditional Mi’kmaq canoe routes for ecotourism in Nova Scotia has become a way for people in Bear River First Nation to strengthen their ties with their land and culture. It is also allowing people to learn from their elders and use that knowledge to create new opportunities. We honour seven directions (the Sky, the Earth, the Soul plus North, East, South and West) and live by the Seven Teachings of love, respect, humility, honesty, truth, wisdom and courage.
