The Story of the Bear River Mi’kmaw Community
L’sitkuk (pronounced elsetkook) is the original name for the Bear River Mi’kmaw community, which is part of the Mi’kmaw First Nation. Nestled close to the Bear River watershed, this tiny native community is regaining its culture, language and identity after hundreds of years of colonialism and assimilation. Living in the area for thousands of years, they were among the first people in Canada to have continuous contact with non-natives.
A Young Fisherman’s Mail
“These letters to Levi are a rare find. Not only are they a delight to read, they are also an invitation to search for further buried treasures of correspondence, particularly in long-settled communities where extended family patterns remain unbroken. The reading public, avid readers of local history, and a broad academic community will join to applaud Roseway for the publication of these letters by people who lived in Nova Scotia’s vital South Shore fishing communities.” –Dr. Ken MacKinnon, Professor of English, Saint Mary’s University, Halifax, N.S.
