L’nu’k Ghost Stories By Julie Pellissier-Lush

$15.12

Mi’kmaq people have been in touch with the spiritual for thousands of years. Some of these spiritual bonds have meant that the Mi’kmaq have resulted in scary encounters with the living. Ancients stories of ghosts and shape-shifters have been told around the fire for generations. Keeping this tradition alive is important not only for future campfires, but also to protect the sacred sites and hollowed grounds.


Julie Pellissier-Lush M.S.M, actress, and bestselling author of My Mi'kmaq Mother, Poet Laureate for PEI, recipient of the Queens jubilee medal in 2013, the Meritorious Service Medal recipient in 2017, and the Senators 150 metal in April 2019. She grew up all over Eastern Canada and spent a number of years in Winnipeg, Manitoba, before coming back home. Julie is a graduate from the University of Winnipeg in 2000 with a double major in Psychology and Human Resource Management. She writes, acts, and does photography to preserve the history and culture of the Mi'kmaq for future generations. Julie wrote the poems for the play Mi'kmaq Legends which has been performed on many different stages in the Atlantic region. It is her hope that this play will someday travel across Canada and beyond so more people have the opportunity to learn about the rich Mi'kmaq history! Julie lives in PEI with her husband Rick, her five children, and her granddaughter Miah.
