Please join us on the continuing journey of truth and reconciliation in Canada.
We have put together a few resources that help raise awareness and inspire conversations around the history and legacies of the residential school system in Canada.
Unrooted, a podcast by The Indigenous Foundation
The Indigenous Foundation is proud to present Unrooted, a podcast focussed on centring Indigenous voices and stories. Through Unrooted, we hope to dismantle systems of oppression and “uproot” the deeply ingrained issues and racism that exist against Indigenous peoples to this day. We hope to share intersectional, holistic perspectives and experiences through speaking with Indigenous and Afro-indigenous advocates and change-makers.
As young children, Lyna and Glen were taken from their homes and placed in church-run boarding schools. The trauma of this experience was made worse by years of untold physical, sexual and emotional abuse, the effects of which persist in their adult lives. The profound impact of the Canadian government's residential school system is conveyed unflinchingly through their eyes. Free on Amazon Prime Video

Plus, if you would like to make a personal contribution, we welcome you to donate in any WAXON location.
