A large crowd descended on Pictou Landing First Nations earlier this morning to support the community in calling for the province to honour the Boat Harbour Act.
After gathering outside of the community’s band council office the group walked down the main road and stopped where Boat Harbour meets the road.
“This is something we haven’t been able to enjoy in 30 years, ” said Chief Andrea Paul. Along with Paul, elders and children from the community were invited to say what they felt should be said about the Boat Harbour Act.
The ceremony ended with a tobacco offering to the water.
The community gathered afterward at the fire hall where a new video was shown and refreshments are served.
