Eskasoni adjusts funerals

ESKASONI, N.S. —Albert Marshall Sr. says the Mi’kmaq have always grieved together as a community. And they work collectively to support the immediate family in their time of need, and social distancing has changed that.

“It has really grounded us,” said the 82-year-old.
Marshall said on the reserve everyone knows each other and they work together to support the family. When they hear someone is on their death bed, they start bringing food, giving hugs, sharing laughs and making sure someone is always there with the grieving family.  Full story here.
