Press Release - Native Council of PEI acknowledges the Acadian Day of Remembrance

The Native Council of Prince Edward Island

For Immediate Release

December 15th, 2014

The Native Council of Prince Edward Island acknowledges the Acadian Day of Remembrance and the horrific Deportation events.

Charlottetown PEI - The Native Council of Prince Edward Island as represented by Director of Public Relations, Andrew Sark, was in attendance for a ceremony  that paid tribute to the Acadian Deportation of 1758, an important part of our Island history.  The afternoon ceremony, organized by la Société Saint-Thomas-d'Aquin (SSTA) and hosted by Parks Canada, was held at the Port-la-Joye--Fort Amherst National Historic Site in Rocky Point, PEI.

"It is important to us as Aboriginal people to maintain ties with the Acadian community. Many of our Acadian and Mi'kmaw ancestors were family and shared lives together. The Acadian Deportation was a painful and horrific part of our past. Many Mi'kmaw people hid the Acadians and protected them in the forests while many others  perished during that time as well," explains Rikki Schock, Vice President of the Native Council of PEI.

The event was well attended including students from École Évangéline, École-sur-Mer, École François-Buote, École-la-Belle-Cloche.  These and students from École Saint-Augustin and École Pierre-Chiasson created a comic strip based upon Henry Wadsworth Longfellow’s classic epic poem, which, itself was based upon the Acadian Deportation.

"It was great to see students participating in the ceremony and learning about their heritage. The location is beautiful, the monument overlooks the actual harbour that once hosted the Mi'kmaw canoes, French tall ships and Acadian chaloupes before the Deportation.  The walking trail to the Acadian Odyssey monument, the Old Harbour Path, features historical-cultural interpretive panels and there is the reminisce of the old Fort Amherst foundations. This is truly a must-see historical gem," states Andrew Sark, Director of Public Relations for the Native Council of PEI.
