The Socio-Thermology of the Mi'kmaq Sweat Lodge

Student: William Meuse

District/Region: Mi'kmaq First Nations

Event: 2008 Canada-Wide Science Fair

William is a student at Waycobah First Nation Secondary School and his project, 'The Socio-Thermology of the Mi'kmaq Sweat Lodge', investigated all the aspects of heat transfer in the Mi'kmaq sweat lodge in order to come to an understanding of why these temperatures have created such a spiritual experience for Mi'kmaq people.

To do this William built a lodge, asked elders for help, heated rocks, ran tests, surveyed people, collected anecdotal data, participated in and measured an actual sweat.

At his Regional Science Fair, William took First Place in his age group.

Congratulations, William!
