October is Mi'kmaq History Month [http://mikmaqhistorymonth.ca/]
"The Creation of Mi’kmaq History Month
In 1993, Premier John Savage and Mi’kmaw Grand Chief Ben Sylliboy declared October as the official month to recognize and celebrate Mi’kmaw culture and heritage. Mi’kmaq History Month is celebrating its 20-year anniversary in 2013 and we invite everyone to join us in the celebration of our culture and heritage.
Each October, community activities, events, sharing and showcasing the Mi’kmaw history takes place across Nova Scotia. Everyone is encouraged and welcome to participate in Mi’kmaq History Month events. If your community business, organization or school has a Mi’kmaw related event, story, photo, creation, submission or musical contribution that you would like to share, we would love to hear from you and will add your contribution to our website."
