Everyone needs to hear these stories!!

Before this podcast I had never been educated about what had happened at the residential schools.
These stories are heart breaking and I couldn’t believe that this ever happened.
But I feel that I have a better understanding and will continue to educate myself on the history of indigenous people. I was left so confused at the fact that anyone would ever think that doing this to these families was ever a good idea. It’s just brutal and I cannot believe I was never taught about any of this while I was growing up or in school.
Thank you so much for making this podcast, I will be sure to share it.
These stories need to be heard.
Much love and compassion for everyone involved.

Very pleased first timer! ,

So personal

In a very emotional way I loved listening to every minute... reminds me a lot of when my parents/grandparents would tell me their stories while I was growing up. It’s amazing having such relatable content as well as true, pure, honest generational history available for those who may not understand or even know about the history of indigenous peoples. Can’t wait for more.
