1784: (Un)Settling Antigonish

A participatory theatrical and musical pilgrimage that will transport you back to 1784 and the first permanent European settlement of Antigonish — the landing of Colonel Timothy Hierlihy and his company of United Empire Loyalists at Antigonish Harbour, homeland of the Mi’kmaq.

Pilgrims all, we’ll resound to Mi’kmaq and Irish songs and rituals, featuring the harp music of the Hierlihy family’s native Ireland. In the way of pilgrims, we will settle—or unsettle—for ourselves the past and the present of the place we call Antigonish.

A healthy community knows its history
