Job opportunity with Miramichi Linkages Project

The Miramichi Linkages are an amalgamation of cultural identities that helped form our area, what is now called the Greater Miramichi Area. From the depths of the Miramichi Bay and River and its tributaries, from Tabusintac to Neguac, Esgenoôpetitj First Nation, Escuminac, Loggieville, Bartibog River, Lower Newcastle, Chatham, Nelson, Black River, Douglastown, the Port of Newcastle, Natoaganeg First Nation, Sunny Corner and Metepenagiag Mi’kmaq Nation, Millerton, Blackville , Doaktown up to Boisetown is an area that shares commonality in forming this historic place that is affectionately known and called “The Miramichi”.

With a rich history that is both robust and multicultural, it can fairly be said that Miramichi’s heritage is a resource that is consistently underappreciated. Yet, how much undervalued are the linkages between our history and the wider world? To what extent do we endeavour to understand the ways in which our individual communities connect not only to our neighbours, but also nationally and internationally, making our stories part of a global narrative?

This project therefore not only envisions the revival of
those local stories, but also the restoration of the connection between them and the Canadian, and intercontinental, communities of which they are a part. By taking a closer look at local knowledge, local actions, and local personalities, we will endeavour to understand how they rippled across borders and
across time.

In this way, we hope to understand the global reach of our communities and re-forge centuries-old bonds with our erstwhile partners around the world. In attempting to commemorate and celebrate specific episodes and individuals that evidence the impact that Miramichi has had on the world stage, our research will take into consideration a number of factors, not least being memorials that will take place within the project’s lifespan. Of course, we are also hoping to look at how Miramichi’s sons and daughters participated in larger global events, which took place away from home. Overall, we hope to shed greater light on the subsequent cultural co-existence that characterizes today’s Miramichi Region.

EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITY

The Miramichi Linkages Project is seeking an Indigenous person with a passion for history, research, a personal connection to the area, a writer who will work closely alongside a doctorate graduate in History to capture the historical accounts and distinguished characters that make up this part of the land called “The Miramichi”. An accurate account of historical incidents and depiction will lead to a commemoration by the descendants of the region.

DEADLINE: August 20, 2021

ROLE AND RESPONSIBILITIES

• Collaborate in the selection of key industries, stories, and personalities in our region’s past that created unique connections for our community, helping to identify those from the Mi’gmaq tradition that may not otherwise have been previously recognized or acknowledged.

• Identify individuals willing to share relevant oral histories and recollections, prepare interview questions, and record the data in an appropriate manner
• Collect and analyze data, including personal interviews, related to Miramichi historic linkages
