Distance doesn't have to become isolation for Indigenous elders


October 18, 2021

Call grandma.

That’s Larry’s Curley’s message.

So I did. It went something like this:

“Grandma, it’s Shaun. How are you?”

“Hi babba! I’m great, how are you? How is your mom?”

We went back and forth a good half hour, catching up on family business and chatting a little football before she had to leave for an appointment. We hadn’t spoken in a few weeks. I could hear the joy in her voice, and I ended the conversation feeling better than I did earlier in the day.
