Mapping the ancient Wabanaki canoe routes of yesteryear

http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/new-brunswick/wabanaki-canoe-routes-mapping-1.4601748

Since people have lived in #NewBrunswick, there have been highways, though not all created equal.

In 2015, the provincial government closed the #JemsegBridge, leaving a large section of derelict Trans-Canada Highway still standing – abandoned and inaccessible. 
Part of a so-called ‘modern highway,’ the route has decayed past the point of use just a few decades after it was built. 
But underneath it runs another #highway, thousands of years old, and still in working condition.

The #JemsegRiver, along with hundreds of other #rivers, #creeks, and #streams make up the highways used for centuries by #FirstNations communities for trade and travel using #birchbarkcanoes.

Some of these routes are well recognized today, their winding routes shared though the oral history of several #FirstNation communities. Others were thoroughly recorded by famed New Brunswick cartographer and historian William Francis Ganong. 
But some are less known, and some may be lost to history, but researchers are working to map those possible routes using a combination of computer software and linguistics study. “One of the things I was interested in looking at was the use of smaller, or more ephemeral routes, that would have been only available during some times of year,” said Chris Shaw, a graduate student at the University of New Brunswick. “Such as smaller headwaters, or smaller rivers between the major watersheds of the St. Croix and the St. John that may have only been usable when it was high water or in the freshet flooding season in the spring.” By using annual recorded water levels and cross-referencing them with known archeological sites Shaw is mapping where people of the #Wabanaki Confederacy could have travelled by #birchbarkcanoe during different times of the year.

The Wabanaki are made up of the #Maliseet, #Mikmaq, #Passamaquoddy, #Penobscot, and #Abenaki nations stretching from #Maine, across the #Maritimes, and parts of #Quebec.

As someone off reserve the majority of my life, I relate to this so much. We need to remember culture and DNA is deeper than geography & jealously. This show is amazing. Laugh. Cry. Cheer on the girls! This is from Season 1. They're currently replaying on APTN (check your pvr listings) or you can watch them on the APTN website. @traceydeer Thank you for this gift to my generation! 👏

“Apikcilu Binds the Sun,” 2018. My entry for the Heard Museum Guild Indian Fair and Market.

Pihce piche (a long long time ago), before Koluskap paddled behind the rising sun, he was known for his many great adventures. Apikcilu, known for his coiffe of bright white fur—which Apikcilu thought was so pure and beautiful—hoped to gain the same reputation as Koluskap by assisting him on his adventures. 
When Apikcilu’s rise to fame didn’t go as planned, he decided to seek revenge on Koluskap by binding Kisuhs, the Sun Bird, and throwing her into a ravine, throwing the cycle of nature out of balance and covering the world in unending darkness.

Koluskap eventually rescued Kisuhs, but was only able to free one of her wings. Now, instead of standing atop her mountain with wings open for the day or closed for night, Kisuhs stands with one wing forever outstretched as she slowly turns around, giving half the world daylight at a time while the other half rests in darkness.

As punishment for what he had done, Koluskap threw Apikcilu into the fireplace, burning and staining his fur until it was black and had an awful smell. To make sure that Apikcilu and his children would never forget their crimes, Koluskap left two bright white stripes down the back and tail of the smelly Apikcilu. 
I believe that Apikcilu has become too proud of his fur and has bound the sun once more. We all wait in darkness for Koluskap to free Kisuhs, and we must have faith that the sun will come again. Balance shall be restored to the natural cycle, and Apikcilu’s white fur will be stained and smelly to remind him of what he has done.

Story Telling Live! Join me tomorrow night on Insta Stories at 8pm to hear the M’ikmaq story of Oochigeaskwa, also known as “The Rough Faced Girl” or “Little Scar Face.” I’ll be telling this story this weekend at the Mama and Me sandal class in San Diego. There’s just one spot left if you want to join. This story is one of the many Cinderella folktales that I tell at my sandal making workshops and their prevalence across cultures is the basis for the shoe symbolism I’ve been studying and working with. The Cinderella tale is The most told story across cultures. There’s gotta be something to it if so many cultures have their own folkloric tradition around this story.
.
I’m thinking of recording these stories and having them available to listen and watch on my website...more soon!
.
Photo talking story, singing and making majic from recent fire making ritual for @artofloving and @yogalastudios
.
I’m also available to share my skills of fire, sandal, story and ritual with your community whether it’s a yoga teacher training or a bachelorette blessingway or a private event.
