Kejimkujik National Park and National Historic Site is located in an area that is rich with the history of the Mi'kmaq. For millennia, the Ancestors canoed along these connecting rivers and lakes, set up hunting and fishing camps along the shores, built fishing weirs in the streams, and even laid their dead to rest in the burial grounds adjacent to the lake. The very landscape at Kejimkujik attests to the presence of the Mi'kmaq since time immemorial, and the presence of the ancient petroglyphs lends a silent voice to the lives of those who made their home in this area.
