April 2-3 New Book About Giant's Walk
A young Innu man named Giant aka Michel Andrew had a dream. In it he was walking across Labrador to try to halt the diabetes epidemic that is crippling his people. Gaint decided to act on his dream and in 2009 he walked from Sheshashuit to Natuashish - a journey his ancestors would’ve undertaken easily. But such is the dependence on snowmobiles, many people didn’t think Giant would make it. His journey and ultimate success is chronicled in a book of photographs by Alex Andrew. Alex helped organize the walk and he spoke to me about the book and Giant’s journey.
