Welcome to the Eastern Woodland Métis Nation Nova Scotia website.

News Flash!! On Sunday July 31, 2016 EWMNNS Grand Council members were at the Killam Brother's Marina in Yarmouth to meet with Captain Narnou Thompson of the Hawaiian Voyaging Canoe Hokule'a. This was their first visit to Canada. They were here on a cultural visit to meet 1st Nation and Indigenous peoples of the area. Chief Gilbert Parker presented our flag and some information on the Metis culture in Nova Scotia. Negotiator/Speaker Charles Crosby and Spiritual Leader Adrienne Speck also welcomed our visitors.I was also there but was overcome with the heat (I have COPD) and was unable to do the presentation myself.

Congratulations from the members and council of Eastern Woodland Metis Nation N.S. to Spencer Muise (who is a member) and the bass player for the "Blue Jean River Band' formally known as the "Rockabilly's". The Blue Jean River Band has recently been nominated for an East Coast Aboriginal Recording of the year for their new album "Eastbound" this will be in NFLD. Receiving this nomination is a true testament to the hard work and dedication the members have put in the studio to finish the album and release their best music to date. In 2013 Spencer was awarded a scholarship through inspire to take a music business course at the Dartmouth Waterfront Campus. Since graduating the course he has applied all the skills and knowledge he attained while studying at NSCC to pursue his career in music with the band. The new album "Eastbound" is available on ITunes, and to find out more about the band you can find them on all forms of social media. - Grand Chief Mary Lou Parker
