    Glenn John Arts and Crafts Center

    Stay tuned...

    Glen John Arts and Craft Center is named after a band member. Glen John was a self-taught artist whose art captured in many ways a central feature of life at Miawpukek, that being time on the country. Glen’s pencil and charcoal sketches depicted many nature scenes and wildlife based on real life experiences and places in Ktaqamkuk (Newfoundland) Mi’kmaq territory.

    As a self-taught artist, a kind and generous spirit, and an active outdoorsman, Glen served as a role model to many Miawpukek members, young and old alike. Glen’s untimely and tragic passing into the sprit world saddened the Miawpukek Community and all who knew him. The Miawpukek Band felt is befitting to honor Glen and all artists by naming the building after him.
