I call this piece One Story. It represents a reminder of each individual’s experience with residential schools. Sometimes I think people forget that residential schools are still impacting Indigenous youth today.
I suffer from a loss of culture due to my grandmother attending Indian day school. Her favourite animal was the hummingbird. This design represents her and every single person’s story as a reminder that every story is different and every child matters.
