This year many Canadians are celebrating 150 years of confederation. It is interesting the
celebration falls on the heels of the Truth and Reconciliation Call to Action. As a Mi’kmaw
person, I knowmy people have walked on this land for at least 13,000 years; that’s what
we can prove scientifically. So I amnot necessarily celebrating 150 years as a nation. I am,
however, celebrating a marriage this year.
