History, culture & beauty
waiting to be discovered
Pjila’si! Nestled along the Bras d’Or Lakes in Cape Breton’s rolling heartland, where the highlands meet the lowlands along the shores of the island’s beautiful inland sea, there’s history, culture, and beauty waiting to be discovered. There is a tremendously vibrant cultural heart in this region, beating with the drums of the Scottish who settled the land of the Mi’kmaq who were here before.

Drumming, the heartbeat of the nation, is a way of life for Mi’kmaq people. Stories of a wonderfully rich culture are expressed through traditional dance, song and drumming.
Indulge in a flavourful culture while experiencing traditional Mi’Kmaq cooking, outdoors, over an open fire.
Storytelling has always been important to the Mi’kmaq people. Enjoy the tales that make up the vibrant culture, those that have built our moral foundation, and taught us life lessons.
