Nic Meloney is Wolastoqew (Maliseet) from Woodstock First Nation, N.B., born and
raised in Cape Breton Island, N.S. He currently lives and works in Mi’kma’ki, the ancestral territory of the Mi’kmaq in Nova Scotia, for CBC’s Indigenous Unit.
Nic began his career with CBC as a video journalist with CBC Nova Scotia, working out
of both the Sydney and Halifax stations. Since taking a staff position with the Indigenous Unit, Nic’s shared the stories of Indigenous peoples from across Turtle Island/North America and internationally – from the Cree of James Bay to the Maori of New Zealand. “Actually seeing and hearing the stories of Indigenous Peoples, in their own voices, is of great personal value for me. It’s enhancing my own story and how I see the world, every day. I think the same can be true for any human who’s willing to watch, listen and learn.” You can follow Nic @nicmeloney @CBCIndigenous
Nic will be celebrating his 2nd anniversary with Word on the Street and you can join him in conversation with Authors Theresa Meuse and Alan Syliboy at 10 am in the CBC Tent Front Plaza.
