    Suicide of Neskantaga chief’s son renews calls for action

    Tragedy has struck Neskantaga First Nation again, less than a year after a series of suicides and suicide attempts forced a state of emergency.
    The son of Chief Peter Moonias — 29-year-old Dwayne Moonias — took his life last month.  The incident has led to renewed calls for more comprehensive suicide prevention measures.  
    The Grand Chief of Nishnawbe Aski Nation, Harvey Yesno, said Moonias was a talented musician and a leader on NAN’s youth council — and his death has shocked the Neskantaga community.
