About East Hants

We respectfully acknowledge that we are in Mi’kma’ki and the District of Sipekne’katik, the ancestral and unceded territory of the Mi’kmaq people. East Hants further acknowledges the 50 African Nova Scotian communities whose 400-year history have contributed to the province’s culture, history and legacies. We are all treaty people.
