Description

This is a community project, owned and controlled by the James Bay Cree health department. In, E nâtamukw miyeyimuwin, twenty-one James Bay Cree storytellers put a face to Canada’s Indian Residential School cultural genocide in conversation with Ruth DyckFehderau, the writer for this group.

Through intimate personal stories of trauma, loss, recovery, and joy, they tell of experiences in the residential schools themselves, in the homes when the children were taken, and on the territory after Survivors returned and worked to recover from their experiences and to live with dignity.
