L’nu artist begins beaded portrait series with elders and traditional medicines 

One of the smallest Mi’kmaw communities in New Brunswick hosts a dynamic father-daughter duo. 

Ashley and Christopher Sanipass help ground youth culturally in their Indian Island community, about 86 kilometres north of Moncton. The pair have taken kids spearing for eels out on the ice, they hold hand drum-making workshops and teach the youth to dance their own powwow styles. 

Ashley Sanipass, 36, said she and her father owe a lot to Mi’kmaw culture. 

“It’s been over 30 years ago, since he started his cultural journey and I want to say it saved his family,” said the L’nu artist. Full story here.
