Elders

Thank you to the Elders and other Knowledge Holders who made themselves available to be interviewed.  Without their knowledge, generosity, and patience, this project could not have happened.  We are continuing to upload videos associated with different place names.  These short videos can be accessed by going to the specific place names on the digital atlas, and some are attached to the names of Elders and Knowledge Holders below.   They cover a wide range of topics associated with the landscape. 

Some place names with videos:  Pine Tree, Chapel Island,  Yarmouth, Newville Lake, Digby Gut, Digby Town, St. Mary’s Bay, Bear River, Kelly’s Mountain, Eskasoni, Antigonish Harbour Island, Afton, North Sydney, Kings Road, and Wycocomagh. Others will be added in time.
