2013-2014 Talks

The last few months have been a whirlwind, it seems, and I plan to write a long post about my experiences once I have a chance to catch my breath. In the meantime, I’ve been invited to give a number of talks across the country over the next few months. The first talks at Acadia University and the Millbrook First Nation (see below) were two of the most inspiring experiences of my academic career, so I’m looking forward to future talks. I’ll update this post as I get more information from the organizers.

    I am leading a TRC commemoration project called the Witness Blanket where we are building a monument made from “pieces of history” collected from residential schools, government buildings, churches and traditional structures across the country. It is a visual representation of reconciliation that I would be happy to explain in greater detail. The reason for my post is we are currently looking for documentation that connects Nazi doctors to the various experiments carried out at residential schools. Proper documentation may lead to us being able to access a “piece of history” for our monument from the German government. Thank you for the work you are doing. Best Regards
