Indigenous content in these maps and throughout the new Fortress Halifax exhibit was developed in collaboration with our partners at Mi’kmawey Debert. Map content draws upon the Mi’kmaw Place Names Digital Atlas and Trudy Sable and Bernie Francis, The Language of This Land, Mi’kma’ki (Sydney, NS: Cape Breton University Press, 2012).
