Witness Blanket-honouring

It is difficult to articulate the importance, and the power, of this project here in Canada..

May the atrocities committed to indigenous people, in many cases little children, never be forgotten, and may they never ever be repeated.

One thought on “Witness Blanket-honouring

  1. I watched this video. BEST I’ve seen in a long time. I like the idea of saving actual pieces of the past (as hard as it is to see them); they are real reminders of what happened years ago. (For me 70+). I grew up in a community were the First Nations people (as they are now known) had segregated seating, never thought of that being racist, it just was that way….I never gave it a second thought, we were always ‘drawn’ to our seats. None of us would be comfortable in the Church sitting on the left hand side if we were used to sitting on the right. No Predujice there . But I’m also guilty of throwing bottles and trash out the car window. No one told us NOT to…. Maybe someday you will get to be in your 70’s, and you’ll look back and think – how could I have done that…hopefully our PM will right a lot of the wrongs…
