Last night, Labrador said goodbye to a respected elder from Sheshatshiu. Francis Penashue (if you don’t know him but are a regular Them Days reader, you may remember his story about trapping beaver from an issue last year) passed away last night in tent just outside the Labrador Heath Centre, following his final wishes. CBC has posted a couple of nice stories about Mr. Penashue that I would like to share with the readers of this blog.
- How Francis Penashue saved my life, and his own
- Francis Penashue, former Sheshatshiu chief, dies
- A Tribute to Francis Penashue (The Labradorian–added 26/09/2013)
Them Days sends its condolences to the Penashue family.
