Mi'kmaq people have been in touch with the spiritual for thousands of years. Some of these spiritual bonds have meant that the Mi'kmaq have resulted in scary encounters with the living. Ancients stories of ghosts and shape-shifters have been told around the fire for generations. Keeping this tradition alive is important not only for future campfires, but also to protect the sacred sites and hollowed grounds.

Tee Sock is a Mi'kmaw mother of three grown children from Epekwitk First Nation located on Prince Edward Island. Tee is also an established Mi'kmaw artist who specializes in dreamcatchers, beadwork, leatherwork, and other areas of Indigenous arts. Tee is also one of three founders of Mi'kmaq Paranormal.

From a very early age, being "First Nation" taught us through teachings to believe in the paranormal, and it was not unusual to sit around with adults as you heard their encounters of paranormal events. It was scary and fascinating at the same time, and as we grew older, we were always aware of spirits and presences; I guess you could say it opened a whole world of possibilities to investigate. We have investigated many homes and locations over the years, which gave us the idea of making this a permanent part of our lives.

Sheri Bernard is a Councilor of Abegweit First Nation, and a band member there as well. Sheri worked several years in the justice department at the Mi'kmaq Confederacy of PEI and volunteers many hours in her community and in Charlottetown at the soup kitchen. With everything she has on her plate, she likes to relax by hunting ghosts all over Prince Edward Island and beyond. Sheri grew up in Rocky Point First Nation, and grew up with the stories of our ancestors, so believing in ghosts came naturally for her, and proving their existence to others became a mission. Sheri has one beautiful daughter, Meiko, and three grandchildren. Her love of ghost hunting only comes in second to her love of her family and community. Sheri has a passion to help her community members, family members, and her friends. From dressing up as a Christmas elf or a scary monster at Halloween, to sitting for hours being a support person to someone in need, Sheri is always there, putting her love of her people first over anything.
