  • My name is Sheila Bernard and I'm from Paq'tnkek (Mi'kmaw Nation). So I had an idea. I went house to house and I asked permission from the elders if they wanted to be interviewed or pictures taken or if they wanted such a program on the reserve, and they all agreed. The idea of the calendar is, I went by the moons. They have like a Maple Syrup moon, that's in March. Each one will have like a Bird's Lay Eggs moon. That's in April to May. Then you have May to June, you have a Frogs Croaking moon. What I liked most was interviewing and getting the history of our reserve. It taught me a lot. Well, stuff that I didn't really know until I was told by the elders themselves. There was a lot of history that I didn't know.
