The Nor’West

Metepenagiag, Red Bank, Sunny Corner, South Esk & Eel Ground

Red Bank is located where the Little Southwest and Northwest Miramichi Rivers meet, and its traditional name is Metepenagiag (MET-DEH-B’-NAH-GHEE-AGH). Known as the “Village of Thirty Centuries”, Metepenagiag is the oldest community in New Brunswick. Metepenagiag along with the neighbouring First Nation community of Eel Ground (Natoaganeg) host annual Pow Wows, celebrating their culture through traditional dance, food, drumming and regalia.

Tradition, conservation and respect for nature are prevalent in this area of the Miramichi. The oldest fish hatchery in Canada is located in South Esk providing valuable salmon research while working to enhance salmon populations in the Miramichi watershed.

Many outfitters offer hunting and fishing excursions and tubing is very popular. A modern lodge near the new Metepenagiag Heritage Park provides conference facilities. Sunny Corner is the local service centre providing necessary conveniences and amenities.
