Pjila’si ● Welcome
Membertou is one of five Mi’kmaw communities in Unama’ki (Cape Breton Island), and one of thirteen in Nova Scotia.
Mi’kmaw culture dates back thousands of years and through those years, many traditions talents and stories have been carried on through the tight knit generations. We invite you to experience our culture first-hand.
Membertou was not always situated at its present location. One hundred years ago, Membertou (formally known as the Kings Road Reserve) was located along the Sydney Harbour. In 1916, our people were the first Indigenous peoples forcefully relocated in Canada’s History. In 1926, The Membertou Community was officially moved to its present day location. Today, we embrace our progress and welcome the world to experience our rich and historical Mi’kmaw culture.
