ABOUT THE FILM
Imagine for a moment, your six year old child taken from you. Taken to a place far away from the love and security of home, family, and community.
In 1929, St. Michael’s Residential School opened its doors in Alert Bay, BC. It was the largest school by the Anglican Church. First Nationals children from the Northwest Coast of British Columbia were taken from their homes.
In this powerful film, people share in their own voices; their stories of personal trauma as St Michael’s is demolished.
Today we continue to strive for healing and forgiveness. The resilience of our people survived a very dark and devastating period. This will never happen again in our history as a people.
