Chief & President Lorraine Augustine, of the Native Council of Nova Scotia, along with the Board of Directors, members and staff extend our deepest condolences on the passing of Grand Chief Ben Sylliboy.
The Grand Chief, and the members of Mi’kmaq Grand Council, through their traditional leadership of the Mi’kmaq Nation, work to keep our Treaties and Nation strong. His leadership led to many discussions about our Treaties, Aboriginal Rights and Aboriginal Title. It is a great loss to our Mi’kmaq Nation.
Our prayers are with his family and friends; as well as the members of the Mi’kmaq Grand Council and the entire Mi’kmaq Nation in this time of mourning.
