Aboriginal Traditional and Ecological Knowledge

 Parks Day with Gerald Gloade

1:00 pm to 3:00 pm

Gerald is an Artist, Carver and Educator who is employed as the Program Development Officer for the Mi'kmawey Debert Cultural Centre.  “Our ancestors’ survival depended on seeing signs and patterns in nature to tell them when it was the best time to hunt, to plant or to prepare for winter. Many of these signs can be seen today, like the silence of crickets preceding the start of fall weather. (Our ancestors knew that when the crickets stopped singing, it was time to dry fish for winter, because the humidity was out of the air.)” Regular park admission applies.
