MESSAGE FROM THE CHIEF
Happy New Year. I hope that you all weathered the recent flooding in Newfoundland, and that in cases where damage was done, I pray that you found support in your families and community. May the Creator bless you all with good health and the care of community in the year ahead.
In this edition of Maw-pemita’jik Qalipu’k you will find the details on a demonstration set to take place in Ottawa this weekend on the front page. On page 2, find out how the Chief is negotiating for grassroots people and community members, and how to share your story, and in my editorial, I’m With You, Joe, read a story that many can relate to- Joe is one of our members who has been told he will lose his status.
“My biggest therapy is Mother Nature…I feel responsible, as a Mi’kmaq person, to help Mother Nature. We look at everything, whether it is a rock or a tree, as life.”
Tyrone Mulroney suffered a heart attack in 2014. Since then, he has relied not only on western medicine but has also immersed himself in the quiet, therapeutic benefits of Mother Nature, and the healing she provides.
Check out this inspiring video about Tyrone’s journey, and his nature focused approach to healing.
