Reviving a Mi’kmaq tradition - Salite

Helping a bereaved family in a time of need.

"A salite is basically a way to help a family that has lost a loved one. In the past it may have been carried out on a small scale. However, in Conne River, the salite has grown to encompass the entire community, with many people helping the bereaved family in a time of financial and spiritual need."
