Welcome to the Eastern Woodland Métis Nation Nova Scotia

Our site is here for promoting
Education, Training, Business opportunities
and Leadership in Self-Governance.
Our goal is to help our people reach their full potential
and realize Economic, Cultural, Social and Spiritual wellness,
while becoming more economically independent and self-reliant.

It is hoped that this site will never be finished
and that there will always be something new
to pass on, promote, educate and inform the world about.

We do not inherit the Earth from our ancestors, we borrow it from our children, their future rests in our hands.
