Annapolis Valley First Nation (AVFN) was founded in 1880.
It is located in the beautiful Annapolis Valley Nova Scotia, which is one of four provinces in Atlantic Canada (Mi’kma’ki).
Mi’kma’ki is the unseeded ancestral territory of the Mi’kmaq people.
Through education and economic development, as well as, working with the communities of Nova Scotia, we will work towards being self-sufficient within our own community.

AVFN was severely impacted by the Shubenacadie Indian Residential School. Many of our elders attended the school which unfortunately took away most of our language and culture. We are currently in the process of revitalizing our language and culture for the next 7 generations. We continue to strive by taking wisdom from our elders and empowering our youth through education.
