Tragedy continues to strike northern First Nations, with the report of two young people in Pikangikum have taken their own lives.

Nishnawbe Aski Nation's Youth Council is offering support to the remote community.

Reports say Pikangikum was already recovering from the deaths of two other youths, both 12 years old, to suicide earlier this month. 

Those deaths took place within a week of the loss of a 15-year-old in the remote community of Summer Beaver.
