Mi 'kmaq研究

Immerse Yourself In Mi’kmaq Tradition

The rich 文化 and long history of the Mi’kmaq thrives today on Cape Breton Island and at CBU. From the ancient Mi’kmaw 语言 to modern Mi’kmaw current events, you’ll become immersed in a program that focuses on teaching the true ways of Canada’s First Nations people.

The various Mi 'kmaq研究 courses teach students how to read and write in Mi’kmaq, how the 加拿大 印度n Act works, details of First Nation 治理 and much more. This comprehensive area of study examines multiple aspects of the Mi’kmaq, discussed within a framework of the current First Nations reality – not only within Canada, but on a broader scale, 在全球范围内.

在CBU, the Mi 'kmaq研究 courses focus on two major themes of study: Mi’kmaw 语言 and 文化; and Mi’kmaw politics, history and 治理. These courses are designed to provide a solid foundation for both Indigenous and non-Indigenous students alike.
