Canoe Labrador with Elizabeth Penashue

This isn't fashion or design related. This has to do with Canada, and the balance between modern living and our native people. Elizabeth Penashue is an Innu Elder and native rights activist in Labrador. I grew up hearing stories about her and her family, and I'm sad that due to my education and career commitments I have yet to have the pleasure of meeting her. I can say that to canoe the Churchill river with her and her family would be epic.

The yearly walk, my dad is in there.
