We started the day back in Bear River to visit the First Nations Cultural Centre. It was a good introduction to Mi'kmac history and culture. At Kejimkujik National Park, called Keji for short, we hiked three trails: one along the Mersey River, another above the river and around a drumlin, and the last to see remains of gold mines. At 6:00pm we joined a guided tour of the Mi'kmac petroglyphs, which are in a restricted area. We had to take off our shoes and socks to avoid damaging the drawings. Unfortunately, decades of graffiti have invaded the rocks.
