CBU – Atlantiar Knekk Tepaw: A Basque-Mi’kmaw Cultural Exchange Symposium

by ahnationtalk on May 29, 2018265 Views

In the fall of 2018, Stephen Augustine, Hereditary Chief on the Mi’kmaq Grand Council and Associate Vice-President, Indigenous Affairs and Unama’ki College, at Cape Breton University (CBU), will host 55 international delegates, including 26 speakers who are world-class experts in their field, in Cape Breton for a week-long symposium that will explore ancient and modern connections between Basque and Mi’kmaw peoples.

The geographic area of research of this symposium is Eastern Canada (specifically Mi’kmaw territory) and its ancient transatlantic connections with Western seaboard cultures of Europe — including Basque, Irish, Welsh, and Scots.

As an important part of this event, an academic conference will be held September 27th and 28th on campus at CBU.
