North Island College Elder in Residence on National Day for Truth and Reconciliation "Much More than a Holiday"
Sept. 30 marked the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation. “It is a day to honour and recognize the ones who survived, and remember and honour the ones who were murdered in the schools,” she said. “But I don’t think it should be called a holiday. Holidays (imply) everybody having good times, and all that. This is a time where we should be remembering, and having ceremonies, to remember all those who didn’t make it, and all the ones who were traumatized for life from their experiences there.”
