Miawpukek Powwow

Yesterday, we were honoured to attend the Miawpukek Powwow and met Saqamaw Misel Joe, Chief of the Miawpukek First Nation (also known as Conne River, Newfoundland)

Chief Joe visited the ship and spent time with us in the Legacy room where he offered a gift of a handmade birch bark canoe. After the Powwow Grand Entry, Chief Joe took us on a medicine walk in the woods where we also saw the Birch bark canoe building workshop.

After a long (and bumpy) journey through the night, we arrived at Mistaken Point, a new UNESCO heritage site which is home to some of the oldest fossils ever found on earth. We are just waiting for the Zodiacs to take us to land… which we can’t see through the thick fog!

Adventure is out there!
