Sulia'n's father was adopted in the 60s, and his parentage is unknown. His father's adoptive family said that he had an Indigneous and a Settler parent. Sulia'n decided to address the void that his father's adoption created through becoming an enthusiast of the Mi'kmaw language and civilization, as well as actively participating in the urban Indigenous community in Kjipuktuk.
