 Miiyubinoskum (He Who Brings New Life), Abraham Bearskin
 The Need for Reconciliation in Canada
 
A Cree Elder from Chisasibi on the eastern shores of James Bay, Miiyubinoskum has worked for the Cree Board of Health and Social Services of James Bay (CBHSSJB) in various positions for over 20 years.
 
As a residential school survivor, Miiyubinoskum (Abraham Bearskin) founded his own healing in ancestral teachings and rituals, meditation, and reconnecting back to Mother Earth.
 
Today, his work focuses on helping others heal from, and raise awareness about, the trauma and persistent social issues associated with residential schools.
 
He is currently Coordinator for the Nishiiyuu Miyupimaatisiiun Department of the CBHSSJB, where he contributes to transforming the way of life, health, and Miyupimaatisiiun (wellness) of Cree individuals, families, and communities by introducing traditional practices and methods into CBHSSJB’s overall mandate.
