Mi’kmaq Alsumk Mowimsikik Koqoey Association (MAMKA)

The Qalipu Mi’kmaq First Nation and Miawpukek First Nation are both represented by MAMKA in a variety of marine and ocean stewardship matters. MAMKA has been active since 2005 and is widely known within our Aboriginal Communities. MAMKA is also recognized externally due to its Aboriginal involvement and representation in various marine matters that have an impact on our communities and their waters. MAMKA participates with our First Nation Communities to ensure their involvement and advice in the decision-making process used for aquatic resources and oceans management.
