Murdena Marshall


Murdena Marshall is the kind of person that everybody seems to know. Her notoriety doesn't come from standing on a soap-box, though, thundering away at the sky. She leads by example, in her community.

Murdena Marshall is a former professor at CBU. She's also a storyteller... a spiritual guide... and a keeper of language. Her grandfather, Gabriel Sylliboy, was Grand Chief of the Mi'kmaq Nation for 46 years.

Steve Sutherland spoke with Murdena Marshall this summer.
