Craft Alliance Atlantic Recognizes September 30th as the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation. The Alliance supports the growth of craftspeople working on the ancestral and unceded territories of the Mi'kmaq, Passamaquoddy and Wolastoqey people.

We encourage all our craft industry partners to recognize and celebrate the fundamental impact of First Nations craftsmanship in our region, as they are the basis for many of the current craft traditions enjoyed and practiced here today. We support the upholding of the Peace and Friendship Treaties which re-affirmed the land, hunting and trading rights of this land’s original people.

This week, take time to reflect and learn about the National Centre for Truth & Reconciliation. There are public programs happening online and across Canada.

Nova Scotians are stepping up. Staying apart and getting tested in big numbers. We can’t let up! This is our highest ever case count, but together by following public health protocols we can flatten this curve.
