The final resting place of Natuashish's latest suicide victim, James Pokue (June 2, 1991-Sept. 2, 2014) is protected by a brightly painted fence at the crowded cemetery outside of Natuashish, on the coast of Labrador on Sept. 18, 2014. This latest death was the first suicide in the community since Sept. 1, 2009 - a remarkable statistic for a community that grieved four to five suicide victims annually before that. Natuashish, population about 900, was created in 2002 when the government of Newfoundland and Labrador moved the Innu community from the island community of Davis Inlet following a spate of youth suicides and other serious social issues.
