Description
"In the 1950s, 7-year-old Edmund Metatawabin was separated from his family and placed in one of Canada's worst residential schools. St. Anne's, in northern Ontario, is an institution now notorious for the range of punishments that staff and teachers inflicted on students. Years later, in seeking healing, Metatawabin participated in Native cultural training workshops that emphasize the holistic approach to personhood at the heart of Cree culture. Now his mission is to help the next generation of residential school survivors"--publisher's website.
