Pjila’si / Welcome to EpekwiTk
For over ten thousand years, we – the Epekwitnewaq Mi’kmaq (Mi’kmaq of PEI) – have called Epektwik our home. A proud and resilient Indigenous island community, our history and traditions are woven into the waters, shores, fields, and forests of this little island cradled in the waves. Epektwik is also the chosen home of several other First Nations, Metis, and Inuit peoples, whose cultures and traditions have enriched our community. Come, explore Indigenous PEI and discover how our culture and way of life have been shaped by our deep connection to Epektwik.
