"Giant" completes his walk to Sept Iles, Quebec

Giant Andrew.pngMichel “Giant” Andrew There was quite an emotional arrival in Sept Isles over the weekend. Michel or “Giant” Andrew and sixteen others started walking from community to community along the Quebec North Shore at the beginning of February….that’s nine hundred kilometers from St Augustine to Sept Isles. They wanted to draw attention to Innu health and the growing concern about diabetes rates. Their trek took on a life of it’s own….it was celebrated and it grew…as people joined in to show their support and pride in an Innu way of life that has all but disappeared. Alex Andrew is helping to organize the walk and we were able to reach him on Friday before the group arrived in Sept Isles….
and we speak with the “Giant” himself after he got into Sept Iles.
