As Indigenous peoples we come from strong backgrounds of storytelling and of deep listening. For many of us our traditional ways encourage emotional processing, remembering, and teaching through storytelling. As an organization that centers truth, justice, and healing, we believe that sharing stories from your experience with Indian boarding schools can be an important part of the healing process.
We want to make sure all boarding school survivors are supported during the process of sharing their stories, so part of our follow-up will be understanding what resources you might need in order to feel comfortable talking about your experience.
If you are interested in sharing your experiences and perspectives with us, please submit your information and we will reach out about future opportunities to be part of truth-telling efforts.
