    Introducing “Stolen: Surviving St. Michael’s”

    Introducing “Stolen: Surviving St. Michael’s”

    Episode 1: The Police Officer and the Priest: One night back in the late 1970s, an officer in the Royal Canadian Mounted Police pulled over a suspected drunk driver. When he walked up to the vehicle, he came face-to-face with a ghost from his past: a residential school priest. That officer was journalist Connie Walker’s late father. What happened that night on the side of the road compelled her to return home to Saskatchewan nearly 40 years later to try to investigate a secret in her own family. What she uncovers is a much bigger story.

Incredible

As US citizens, it is imperative we understand the history of the indigenous people that were here long before our ancestors decided to show up. We aren’t taught these things in school, unfortunately, and we have to educate ourselves. Thankfully, this podcast helps with that, and it does it in a beautiful way. Take the time to listen, it’s worth it.

Important

I really enjoy learning this topic. It’s hard to listen to your voice with its croak at the end of every sentence. You have a wonderful speaking voice you should just leave the croak out. But otherwise a great topic
