Sharing, Healing and Learning: Survivor Driven History
My latest piece “Sharing, Healing and Learning: Survivor Driven History at the Shingwauk Residential Schools Centre” was recently published in Education Forum the magazine of the Ontario Secondary School Teachers’ Federation (OSSTF).
The article discusses the history of the Shingwauk Residential Schools Centre (SRSC), the importance of shifting the historical narrative to the Survivor point of view, and the idea of the SRSC as a living archive focused on engagement. This engagement piece is something that is very dear to my heart and is at the core of my public history and archival practice.
Writing with Education Forum was a great experience. Many thanks to editor Michael Young for the opportunity and his support throughout the process.
