Upon the character Hannah Kenidi's death, Betty Moses keeps encouraging her mother, Michelle, to quickly pack away all of Hannah's personal possessions, destroy them and redistribute them to other people in Lynx River. This is actually not uncommon; some Indigenous Canadian groups have perspectives on death, grief and dying that involve giving away the personal possessions of a deceased loved one to those who can use them, burning the possessions and burying the possessions. This can, in rare cases, include destroying photographs, written letters, artwork and other possessions unique to the deceased. According to the University of Toronto, which explored Indigenous perspectives on death and dying for its an Anderson Continuing Education Program in End-of-Life Care, it is typical in some Indigenous cultures for the deceased's family to have a total of 10 days after the funeral and death feast to distribute the personal property of the deceased to other members, thus sending the deceased on their journey. Not all Indigenous Canadians follow this tradition; especially in the late 20th and 21st century, many families want to keep personal possessions, have a written will that sets out inheritance, or have a church/religious leader involved. This depends on the family in question and their own personal decisions. See more »

I learned about our native communities across Canada.
During my career in the mining industry, I visit & meet native leaders & thankfully learn beyond my profession.
I want this series to return with an updated format; to challenge our youngsters & have them ask questions; for us to question federal liberal wasteful spending & denial; to show an accomplished proud people & to bring to the fore...land claims.
