Award – Language, tradition, beading/crafts/sewing, Qalipu Mi’kmaq First Nation, Newfoundland and Labrador

“My cultural learning experience has been humbling. I have had the opportunity to learn my Mi’kmaq traditions and knowledge. My family had taught me that it’s our responsibility to share our knowledge and I am so grateful to now to have learned about my culture. I hope to share these teachings with my community. My experience with the NIB Trust Fund was simple and straight forward.  Each and every person I spoke with were so efficient, professional yet very friendly.”
