Lennox Island First Nation


Sunday September 18

2 pm

On The Menu:

Lobster, Oysters, Mussels, Potatoes, Local Craft Beer


Open flame grills and sand-baked ovens. Stretches of beachfront and expansive sea views. Heritage and harmony. You are invited to Megepaji. Experience an afternoon filled with authentic culture, unique food, and warm hospitality on the traditional unceded territory of the Miꞌkmaq in Western PEI. 

Gather on the shore of Lennox Island for a sacred smudging ceremony and welcome by your Miꞌkmaq hosts, including Guest Chef Joseph Shawana. Soak in the culture and history as Traditional Knowledge Keepers enchant you with stories of their people’s longstanding ties to the region. Dig into a traditional feast of lobster, oysters, mussels, salmon and clams cooked over open fires and bannock baked in the sand. 

Try your hand at basket weaving, hand drum making, and quill making under the guidance of Miꞌkmaq artisans, and be mesmerized by the sights and sounds of traditional dancing and drumming. Soak up the water views from the coast of Lennox Island, a special place with deep roots in the Miꞌkmaq’s history. And, of course, a Miꞌkmaq feast simply wouldn’t be complete without a sweet treat and tea to finish off the day. Come, eat in abundance and immerse yourself in an unparalleled cultural experience.
