Additional Notes

From The Publisher*Canada's relationship with its Indigenous people has suffered as a result of both the residential school system and the lack of understanding of the historical and current impact of those schools. Healing and repairing that relationship requires education, awareness and increased understanding of the legacy and the impacts still being felt by survivors and their families. Guided by acclaimed Indigenous author Monique Gray Smith, readers will learn about the lives of Survivors and listen to allies who are putting the findings of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission into action.
From The Publisher*This nonfiction book examines how we can foster reconciliation with Indigenous people at individual, family, community and national levels.
From The Publisher*Holding each other up with respect, dignity and kindness.
