Ulnooweg, pronounced [Ul-noo-wegg], is a Mi’kmaq word which broadly translated means: “to make indigenous or to adapt beliefs, customs, etc. of the Mi’kmaq”. In this context, Ulnooweg Development Group would translate to an “Indigenized” Development Group incorporating the beliefs, customs, values, etc. of the Mi’kmaq nation. In this way, Ulnooweg operates as an extension of the communities, uniquely stewarding to their needs and supporting their business leaders and entrepreneurs. We are all one team working together towards a vision of self-sustaining, healthy communities.
