Inaugural suicide walk teaches and soothes

The Honouring Life Network would like to congratulate those who participated in the Medicine Trail Walk for Life in Nova Scotia, mentioned in the below article. Thank you for raising awareness for suicide prevention in your community and also your country.

INDIAN BROOK: On Friday, a group of people began walking together. By Sunday, some of them had walked 250 kilometres, from Indian Brook to Eskasoni First Nation, through wind, rain, and sun.

The first Medicine Trail Walk for Life in Nova Scotia was held to raise awareness for suicide prevention, and to bring healing through 10 First Nations communities along the route. It was a re-creation of the Mi’kmaq ancestors’ ways of receiving medicines by travelling through communities to share knowledge, healing, and remedies.
