Kitchen Meeting Launch of The People’s Photo Album

On Dec. 13, 2018 The Casket reported on the Kitchen Meeting launch of The People’s Photo Album: A Pictorial Genealogy of the Antigonish Movement.  The photo by reporter Sam Macdonald shows Deputy Warden Hughie Stewart presenting a copy of the Album on behalf of the Municipality of the County of Antigonish to John R. Prosper for Paqtnkek Mi’kmaw Nation.     As Publishers and Editors of HARP Publishing, the People’s Press, Dorothy Lander and John Graham-Pole are grateful to Sam MacDonald and The Casket for highlighting Paqtnkek in this, the first publication of HARP Publishing.   We think of John R. Prosper as the archivist for Paqtnkek as he contributed many of the photos to the Album, including the 1901 photo of his family on Brown’s Mountain before the government of Canada devised the reserve system.  The baby in this photo, Mary Agnes Marshall, is John R. Prosper’s mother.  John R. Prosper was the first unsung hero at the Kitchen Meeting, in recognition that the Antigonish Movement sprung from the land, from Mi’Kmaki.
