About Pijinuiskaq Park
Pijinuiskaq (pronounced BE-JN-OO-IS-GAH) is the traditonal Mi’kmaq name for the LaHave River, meaning “river of long joints/river branches” (source: Pjila’si Mi’mkma’ki: Mi’kmaw Place Names Digital Atlas).
Pijinuiskaq was one of more than 50 names submitted for consideration during a public naming competition in 2016. The name was submitted by two different individuals: Bonnie Misner and Randy Cameron.
Pijinuiskaq was recommended to Bridgewater Town Council for approval by the Parks, Recreation and Culture Advisory Committee and the Downtown Planning Advisory Committee. It is believed to be the only street, facility, or public space in Bridgewater to bear a Mi’kmaq name, giving special meaning to the naming of this riverside public space at a time of truth and reconciliation.
The Town envisions this park as a place where everyone is welcome. All cultures, all people.
Celebrating their brand new album, Inuusiq/Life the Jerry Cans create danceable, political, powerful music inspired by their lives in Arctic Canada. A unique mix of Inuktitut alt-country, throat singing, rock and roll and reggae, the Jerry Cans are a distinctly northern, one-of-a-kind group — imagine an acoustic version of The Clash mixed with the hilarity of The Pogues. The band perform many of their songs in Inuktitut and are passionate about preserving the language even as the north and their home community of Iqaluit evolve. Jerry Cans music evokes the contemporary Arctic and the spirited people that live there.
