General Event
Indigenous Film Series: We Carry Each Other’s Memories
Feb 21, 2018 4:00 PM-6:00 PM, Kinsella Auditorium, McCain Hall, Fredericton, NB, Canada
In We Carry Each Other’s Memories, Indian Residential School survivors in Atlantic Canada reflect on their experiences with the Shubenacadie Residential School in central Nova Scotia. Their recollections are echoed by subsequent generations who were affected deeply as the impact of trauma is transferred from generation to generation.

The Shubenacadie Residential School operated from 1928 to 1967, taking children from four Atlantic provinces and eastern Québec. Stories shared by brave survivors illustrate the destructive impact Canada's Indian Residential School system had on its Indigenous people and their descendants.

Discussion to be led by Miigam’agan.

This event is part of a series of events to address how St. Thomas University can participate in meeting the demands articulated by the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada. It was organized by the Ad Hoc Senate Committee on the Indigenization of the Academy.
