Our deepest sympathies to the family of Keptin John Joe Sark of Epekwitk
The Office of Regional Chief of the Assembly of First Nations (AFN) Nova Scotia sends our deepest sympathies to the family of Keptin John Joe Sark of Epekwitk. On behalf of the Chiefs of Nova Scotia we offer solace to the Grand Council, their families and community members, and the many Mi’kmaw people across Mi’kma’ki who experienced the kindness and generosity of Keptin Sark.
Regional Chief Prosper reflects on Keptin Sark’s lifelong commitment advocating for the Mi’kmaq,
Keptin John Joe Sark will be dearly missed – it’s a sad day for Grand Council. His advocacy work to ensure the recognition of the Mi’kmaq, our lands & resources, rights to self-governance, just to name one of his many contributions, with the critical insertion of Article 35 of our constitution which recognizes and affirms our treaty and aboriginal rights.
His spirit will live in the hearts and lives of our people for generations to come, he will not be forgotten.Regional Chief Paul (PJ) Prosper.
