As part of Huron History Day: An Active History Pre-Conference for High School and First Year Students Krista McCracken from the Shingwauk Residential Schools Centre facilitated a workshop on Archives and the Truth and Reconciliation Commission.
The workshop introduced high school students, teachers, and undergrad students to the legacy of residential schools. It emphasized a discussion of the impacts of residential school, the important of listening to Survivor experiences, and introduced participants to the Project of Heart.
Participants left with information about Project of Heart and the suggestion that they take what they learned back to their own communities, families, and classrooms. We look forward to seeing how their own Project of Heart projects develop in the coming months.
