About This Experience

The Maritime Museum of the Atlantic, Canada’s oldest and largest maritime museum, presents The Sea In Her Blood, a special 2019 exhibit featuring contemporary women who are redefining traditional ways of living with the sea.

Living in Mi’kma’ki-Acadie-Alba Nuadh-Nouvelle-écosse-Nova Scotia means living with the sea.

Like the land we call home, every generation of maritime women is shaped by the sea – through maintaining tradition and pushing boundaries, work and play, struggle and triumph. Many of their stories have been lost to time.

Today maritime women continue to both redefine traditional ways of living with the sea, and shape new ones. The Sea in Her Blood highlights 17 of these extraordinary women.
