Mi’kmag lands in the Halifax area regarding schools

Part of the morning program in schools in Halifax may include an ackowledgement that the school sits on traditional Mi’kmag lands.

The School Board is considering a daily acknowledgment to be read out as part of the morning announcements.  Board member Jessica Rose calls ita fantastic idea that could help aboriginal students gain a sense of pride in their heritage.  She also thinks the curriculum should have more on the history of indigenous people.
