Four Indigenous women standing together in nature

Enjoy a unique learning experience at the Elsipogtog Cultural Center for a deeper understanding and connection to the cultural teachings of the Mi'kmaq. 

What to expect?

Meet our team at 55 Biggs Drive and load onto a chartered school bus where we'll all travel to 29 Big Cove Road together. Be sure to bring water and a snack in case you get hungry! There are two timeslots available, morning and afternoon. See below for registration links. 

Once we arrive, you'll receive a traditional greeting, guests will enter the community raised teepee for a smudging ceremony along with teachings and insights that will help connect the past to the present cultural ways and customs.  After this enlightening and significant introduction, guests are led by one of the interpretive knowledge keepers into the natural, forested Heritage Path where they will learn about traditional and time-honored ways of using Mother Nature’s gifts and medicines for a better self and community. This 2024 season will see guests experiencing our authentically constructed wigwam, longhouse and sweatlodge made by our local elder and knowledge keeper.  Guests will be able to step inside and feel how life would have been like back in ancestral times!  

The last part of the Heritage Path journey takes place in the Cultural Center where guests have a safe space to ask any and all questions they may have about the Mi'kmaq culture, in order to further their understanding of the true way of life at Elsipogtog, New Brunswick.  Guests will leave enriched by a deeper understanding and connection to the cultural teachings and ways of the Mi’kmaq!
