If you listen closely enough, you can hear the whispers of the Mi'kmaw ancestors. They call out to you as you trace their petroglyphs, they embrace you as you paddle on their ancient highway, the Mersey River. When planning your retreat for this year, be sure to include a visit to Kejimkujik National Park and National Historic Site - the only doubly designated site in Canada. Take a walk with a Mi'kmaw interpreter in the UNESCO Southwest Nova Scotia Biosphere Reserve and immerse yourself in the stories spanning the centuries. Lose yourself in this rich and amazing culture and then find yourself in the shadows of the mighty hemlocks. For more information on Keji (what the locals call the park), visit their website by clicking here.
