October is Mi’kmaq History Month in Nova Scotia. October was proclaimed Mi'kmaq History Month in 1993 by then Premier John Savage and Mi'kmaq Grand Chief Ben Sylliboy. The purpose of Mi'kmaq History Month is to increase public awareness about the Mi'kmaw culture and heritage for all citizens of Nova Scotia. In recognition of this important month, the flag on the special purpose flagpole on the Liverpool Waterfront will fly the Santéé Mawióómi flag (also known as the Mí'kmaq Grand Council flag) for a two week period beginning on October 1, as per Region of Queens Municipality’s Operational Policy #84: Flag Flying.
