‘100 years of loss’ exhibit opens at Bannatyne
Posted Thursday, February 23, 2012 1:00 PM
A mobile exhibit designed to raise awareness of the history and legacy of Residential Schools in Canada was displayed in the Brodie Atrium at Bannatyne Campus from February 9 to 17.

The exhibit, “100 Years of Loss — The Residential School System in Canada,” is a project of the Legacy of Hope Foundation, a national Aboriginal charitable organization.

The bilingual exhibit, free and open to the public, was opened on February 9 by Deborah Young, executive lead, Indigenous achievement, Brian Postl, dean of the Faculty of Medicine, and Florence Paynter, elder at Migizii Agamik (Aboriginal House).

The exhibit’s goal is to sensitize and educate Canadians, challenging stereotypes and fostering dialogue about residential schools.

“I want to explore ways to educate our university community about residential schools here on campus,” said Young. “This exhibit also demonstrates the resiliency and strength of our people.”

The Legacy of Hope Foundation’s mandate is to educate and to raise awareness and understanding of the legacy of residential schools, including the effects and intergenerational impacts on First Nations, Metis and Inuit peoples, and to support the ongoing healing process of residential school survivors.
