Marcus Gosse (Ala’suinu – Traveller), Mi’kmaw Artist

Through the ancient designs and patterns depicted on this Mi’kmaq Creation Story coin, my goal is to show the beauty of Mi’kmaw culture and help preserve it for future generations. My art focuses on cultural preservation so I can help people understand the meanings behind our symbols, designs and stone carvings. By blending conventional and unconventional techniques together in a vibrant way, I aim to provoke thought, display spiritual energy and show diversity through key symbolic elements, such as the eight-pointed Mi’kmaq Star and ancient Mi’kmaq petroglyphs.

Stephen Augustine, Hereditary Chief on the Mi’kmaq Grand Council and Executive Director, Donald Marshall Institute at Cape Breton University

The minting of a coin honouring the Mi’kmaq Creation Story is truly a recognition of one of Canada’s First Nations’ oral history and oral tradition of storytelling explaining the creation of our Mi’kmaq world. The Mi’kmaq Creation Story has been passed down through the family of Hereditary Chief Stephen J. Augustine whose ancestor, Chief Michael Augustine of the Richibucto Tribe, signed a Treaty of Peace and Friendship on March 10, 1760 in Halifax. The principles and ethical protocols in the Mi’kmaq Creation Story are integral to the peace and friendship treaty-making process as well as Mi’kmaq spiritual ceremonies.
