Mi'kmaw calendar featuring children's artwork and Muin - Potlotek First Nation   January 21, 2012

Mi'kmaw Elder Lillian Marshall and her creative team in Potlotek First Nation have worked with the community's school children to produce a colourful and educational 2012 wall calendar.  Mi'kmaw language is profiled throughout the calendar.  The cover features a full image of Integrative Science's large knowledge poster "Pemi Punqek Mi'kma'ki" (one full year in Mi'kma'ki) created in 2008 in conjunction with Elder Lillian and other Mi'kmaw Elders in Cape Breton.  For each month, the wall calendar showcases original artwork by the children or a page from the storybook "Muin and the Seven Bird Hunters" (by authors Lillian Marshall, Murdena Marshall, Prune Harris, and Cheryl Bartlett; illustrated by Sana Kavanagh and Kristy Read; published by CBU Press 2010).
