Mlkiknewawti

Land-based Education Program

Mlkiknewawti

Mlkiknewawti (mel-gig-new-oh-di), meaning that which gives you strength in Mi’kmaq, invites Indigenous youth to learn together on the land.

Hosted in partnership with The Ulnooweg Education Centre and working with Indigenous partners, Elders and Knowledge Keepers, Mlkiknewawti centres community priorities and educational goals through land-based activities that provide students with opportunities to explore STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) through a lens that integrates Western science with Traditional Knowledge. This approach, termed Etuaptmumk (Two-Eyed Seeing), encourages land-based learning and understanding as participants explore STEM concepts through a hands-on, experiential methodology while fostering real-world connections between themselves and STEM.

Registration for summer 2024 opens April 15th!
