This research project focuses on the historical and contemporary cultural significance and importance of the Mi'kmaw game of waltes in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia, and the re-introduction of the game to populations on the island of Newfoundland. Historically, the game held a central role in Mi’kmaw culture and society. This research is to places waltes in a historical context and considers its present-day significance, specifically in reference to re-introducing the game the broader Ktamkukewey (Newfoundland) Mi’kmaw community. This research is a continuation of on-going applied anthropological research involving the study of archival records, and written, audio, and audio-visual documents, profiling the game of waltes at a provincial level, and re-introducing the game to local and regional Mi’kmaw communities in Newfoundland, particularly those in the western region of island Newfoundland. Research findings will be published in a peer-reviewed article, presented at community/university events and will be disseminated through course materials.
