Discover Glooscap's World

Kluskap (Glooscap) is an Abenaki word meaning "man from nothing". Glooscap, the first human, was created out of a bolt of lightening in the sand and remains a figure that appears in many of the Mi'kmaw legends. These legends are stories that are passed down from generation to generation and tell of the Mi'kmaq culture.


Register today for one of our many upcoming workshops including: Mi'kmaq Language, Basket Making, drumming, traditional story telling, quillwork, etc.

Discovering Mi'kmaq Culture

Immerse yourself in an innovative multimedia presentation as Glooscap guides you through the trials, the survival of the Mi'kmaq people. Our aboriginal interpreters will give you a guided tour of the stunning displays of Mi'kmaq quillwork, beadwork, clothing and artifacts and tell you their own stories of what it is like to be Mi'kmaq. You will be able to pick up information to Discover Glooscap's landmarks along the Fundy Shore.
