We visited Indian Brook Reserve In Nova Scotia last month and were shocked to see the poor condition of the grave of Anna Mae Aquash, who was a Micmac native campaigner for native women’s rights and for her efforts was murdered. We emailed the chief of the reserve as well as the Grand Chief who chaired this year’s conference in Fredericton during which he acknowledged the need to meet the crisis of missing and murdered native women. TO date we have not received any reply from either chief. We need to act and not just talk about this crisis. Honoring Anna Mae with a fitting memorial could be a symbol of that commitment or change.


A’ Ho! Anna Mae deserves, at the very least, a fitting memorial. I would travel from Boston to attend a memorial service to honor her.

Is this series available in the states? i am in New York, and have managed to see many Canadian shows-hope to include this one.


This looks so great, I’m in Sydney and was wondering how I might be able to view this? Be happy to pay for privilege.


Renea, I couldn’t reply directly to your comment – you can share this article on FB and other medias you belong to. Tell them they should be able to watch this on the internet. I agree that this information is not known in the states.
