Each year, on the third weekend in August, the Aroostook Band of Micmacs celebrates the Mawiomi of Tribes which is dedicated to all people of Mother Earth. The word "Mawiomi" is derived from the Mikmaq language meaning "Gathering."The event is intended to showcase beauty, strength, spirit and endurance of the Micmac peoples' culture and tradition.
