Megapaji | Experience Lennox Island

Immerse yourself in the rich tapestry of Mi’kmaq culture at “Megapaji: To Eat in Abundance” on the scenic Lennox Island, with the breathtaking Malpeque Bay as your backdrop. As you step onto the island, be prepared to be welcomed by talented Mi’kmaq artisans proudly displaying their age-old crafts, from intricate traditional baskets and mesmerizing porcupine quill artwork to rhythmic drums crafted from smoked ash and moose hide. The day’s spiritual journey begins with a Traditional Smudging Ceremony, gracefully led by Keptin Jim Bernard, purifying the surroundings and invoking blessings. As the ceremony concludes, let your senses be captivated by the tantalizing aromas of locally-sourced seafood and produce, all prepared over an open flame, capturing the essence of the land and sea. This event is more than just a feast; it’s a celebration of Mi’kmaq heritage, artistry, and culinary traditions. Whether you’re a family seeking a cultural experience or a food enthusiast eager to taste the best of what Lennox Island has to offer, “Megapaji” promises an afternoon of abundance in every sense.
