Cash for Eskasoni

Eskasoni is getting almost $100,000 from ACOA for an interpretive program which the band hopes is another step toward making tourism an important part of the First Nation’s economy.

The funding will go toward Eskasoni Cultural Journeys, a two-kilometre trail circling Goat Island at the entrance to the community on Bras d’Or Lake.  It’ll include interpretive panels and stations where people sing, dance and make baskets.  The money will be used to add canoes, a performance space and more interpretive materials to the program.
