Our Mandate:

Penwaaq L’nu’k is a revival of the original Port au Port Indian Band from the 1970s in Cape St George under a new name and to fill this void in our hearts and in our community and contiues to provide Lnu'k/Mi'kmaq regional and local programming and activities in Culture, language, traditions and much, much more.

We are working to build our communities and educate our children exposing them to our true history.

We are also working to help with Elder support as well as food security for vulnerable households.

"Kluskap and the great Creator teaches us to stay humble. Let them give you the wisdom of the ages and guide you on the path of respect and humility."
