The Town of New Glasgow would like to acknowledge that we are on the land known as Mi’kma’ki (MEEG-MAGEE), the traditional territory of the Mi'kmaq people.

The Mi’kmaq are the first people of this land and have been here in present-day Nova Scotia for more than 10,000 years. Today, Nova Scotia continues to be home to over 24,000 Aboriginals, including well over 13,000 Mi’kmaq.

Pictou Landing First Nation is the Mi'kmaq community closest to us with a population of 470 members living on-reserve. To learn more visit Pictou Landing First Nation.
