We Welcome The Children Back Home: The Burden of Sorrow and Survival of the Indian Residential School Experience in Canada

September 20, 2023 @ 12:00 pm - 3:30 pm

This Indigenous Speaker Series session brings together a panel of survivors of the Indian Residential School experience in Canada. This important session will welcome and honor these brave and resilient survivors to lead us in a discussion about the urgency and motivation to right and write a new history in Canada that is based on a proper redress for Indigenous peoples and communities. We Welcome the Children Back Home is an expression to acknowledge those survivors in our families and communities who are hurt and hurting, and who are simultaneously coming to terms with the past and finding a way forward.
