For thousands of years, this land has been known as part of Mi’kma’ki.
The cultural geography of Nova Scotia speaks to our undeniable connection to land and sea. It began with the original inhabitants - the Mi’kmaq - and still permeates our modern cultural mosaic.
The Nova Scotia Heritage map reflects the history of settlement, showing the communities and roads that hug the coast and over 60,000 waterways that lead there - the pull of the sea embedded in our Maritime identity.
A map reads like a story - the land has been shaped by culture as much as culture has been shaped by the land.
Trace the rivers, lakes, harbours, and rugged coastline to read our history - birch bark canoes navigating river channels; marshland carved out by tremendous Fundy tides; Acadian dykes creating pockets of fertility; British conquest of the seacoast Fortress of Louisbourg; a warship explosion in our great harbour city.
Nova Scotia’s land and sea are inextricably linked with the history of this place - the salt ocean, freshwater arteries, veins of coal, granite backbone and wild, wooded plateaus echoing the stories of past and present.
Our Nova Scotia heritage map highlights the original place names. Inspired by Nova Scotia's rich heritage and symbolic of it's deeply shared history.
