Stacy Villeneuve, Native Studies teacher from St. Pius X Catholic High School in Ottawa, brought Project of Heart to her school this spring, and commemorated the deaths of the young students from two Indian Residential Schools in Manitoba: Assiniboia IRS (Winnipeg) and St.Boniface IRS (St.Boniface).

The St. Pius edition of Project of Heart saw its completion with an IRS survivor coming to Stacy’s classroom to talk to the students, answer questions, and create awareness which, until that day, many students did not have concerning Canada’s role in the cultural genocide of Indigenous people.  Villeneuve’s summation of their time with Grandmother? “Amazing time together-truly beautiful.”
