The Sea in Her Blood

On view until October 8, 2023

“Living in Mi’kma’ki/Acadie/Alba NuadhNouvelle-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 Sea In Her Blood was created by the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic (Nova Scotia Museum) and was first shown there from June 2019 through early March 2020.  It is based on information collected and interviews conducted in 2018 and early 2019.
