Living in Mi’kma’ki-Acadie-Alba Nuadh-Nouvelle-écosse-Nova Scotia means living with the sea. Like the land we call home, every generation of maritime women is shaped by the sea – through maintaining tradition and pushing boundaries, work and play, struggle and triumph. Many of their stories have been lost to time. Today maritime women continue to both redefine traditional ways of living with the sea, and shape new ones. The Sea in Her Blood highlights 17 of these extraordinary women.
The Maritime Museum of the Atlantic is showcasing this new exhibit until February 1st, 2020.
