About Glooscap First Nation


Our History

       Glooscap First Nation is located halfway between the towns of Wolfville and Windsor, not far from Blomidon Provincial Park, the ancestral home of Glooscap.

      While the community of Glooscap was founded in 1984, Mi'kmaq people have lived and traveled these lands for thousands of years. This area was an important hunting ground for our ancestors, who traveled along the natural river systems.

A’tukwaqn wjit Bay of Fundy Kjikapa’n”  - Story of the Bay of Fundy Tides

Have you ever wondered why the Bay of Fundy has the highest tides in the world?

We partnered with artist Melissa Labrador, Mi'kmaw Elder Shirley Denny, and the Municipality of the District of West Hants to highlight this tale of Kluskap - a legendary figure responsible for the creation of many landscape features throughout Mi'kmak'i.
