Cultural, Heritage & Spirituality (2014)
“Even if you stumble and fall, dust yourself off and keep going.”
Maggie Paul has been a sweat lodge keeper for more than 15 years. As a gifted singer, she uses song throughout the ceremonies and as a way to mentor young people who are looking to find their voice. She had made two CDs that have captured the traditional songs of the Passamaquoddy and Maliseet people. Paul’s contribution and dedication to song has inspired a new generation of singers to maintain their culture. A true inspiration to people through song, Paul is also an invaluable supporter to those in her community who are struggling. As a strong believer in keeping people’s traditions alive like she has done on the east coast, she has travelled to Paris, Venezuela, Mexico and Belize to share and learn from their cultures.
