Participants in a long-term study with at least one parent attending #ResidentialSchool were 2.35 times as likely to be sexually assaulted in their lifetime as compared to children whose parents did not attend.

Just a few icy footprints and a thin line of snow left along the sidewalk when I was heading to my planning time this a.m. While most area schools enjoyed this last week off, we didn't. #ResidentialSchool #HKS #nosuchthingassnowdays #wouldntwanttoteachanywhereelse

Over the coming months I will share excerpts from the summary of "The Final Report of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada." I have just finished the introduction and the history section and am going to sit and process my new intimate knowledge of my country's history. .
.
.
. "In 1996, the "Report of the Royal Commission on Aboriginal Peoples" urged Canadians to begin a national process of reconciliation that would have set the country on a bold new path, fundamentally changing the very foundations of Canada’s relationship with Aboriginal peoples. Much of what the Royal Commission had to say has been ignored by government; a majority of its recommendations were never implemented." .
.
.
. "At the Manitoba National Event in 2010, Survivor Evelyn Brockwood talked about why it is important to ensure that there is adequate time for healing to occur in the truth and reconciliation process. She said,
When this came out at the beginning, I believe it was 1990, about residential schools, people coming out with their stories, and ... I thought the term, the words they were using, were truth, healing and reconciliation. But somehow it seems like we are going from truth telling to reconciliation, to reconcile with our white brothers and sisters. My brothers and sisters, we have a lot of work to do in the middle. We should really lift up the word healing.... Go slow, we are going too fast, too fast.... We have many tears to shed before we even get to the word reconciliation." .

Tonight I attended Session 2 of the Truth & Reconciliation Commission Report Reading Group. "This group will gather @AGOToronto for 7 monthly sessions to read and discuss Honouring the Truth, Reconciling for the Future: Summary of the Final Report of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada. This Commission was established in 2008 with the dual mandate of gathering the testimony of survivors of the residential school system and providing a path forward to healing and reconciliation. .

Vision sits in the east where the sun rises and the day begins. We are supposed to travel through knowledge, feeling and reason before we engage in movement and action. I’m beginning to understand how powerful traditional knowledge is. .

Finally finished this piece. Definitely one of my favorites. I wanted to show "the way we lived", which is written on the teepee in Cree sylabics. Also the 15 poles of the 15 teachings and the 14 stitches on in the teepee representing family unity.
My idea was to create a mirror image of our culture then the darkness of the forced teachings through residential schools of Catholicism. This is for those who were lost and those who survived💕

Leonard (L) and Victor feed thier crack addiction in an alley off Whyte Ave.
Both had been on the streets for over a decade when the photo was take and suffered from addiction and mental health problems. Deeply affected from truama, historic and lived. Leonard told me once the only way he could sleep was by being "off his ass" on drugs or alcohol. The "bad stuff" from Residential School, his childhood and life on the streets would explode in his mind unless they were numbed by substances. I will post more pictures and stories of Leonard soon. Both men have since passed away. #canada #residentialschool #reconciliation #truthandreconciliation #indigenous #addiction #mentalhealth #housingfirst #photojournalism #photo #b_w #monocrome #bnw_captures #blackandwhite #yeg #governmentofcanada #truama #historictruama #photography #photostory #homeless #homelessness
