Hudbay, the Flin Flon Friendship Center and Flin Flon and District Chamber of Commerce are sponsoring a workshop tomorrow. The Intergenerational Effects From Indian Residential School Informational Workshop will be presented by Janet Head from the Opaskwayak Cree Nation who is a second generation intergenerational Residential survivor. She says it’s a passion for her to get to educate people and tell her story as part of her healing. She explains for them residential schools were programming and it was all negative programming so the people that went to residential schools carry those programs and they pass it on to their children so her part is to wake up the people to let them know what happened to them. Head says it was a sad story but also a positive story because it tells how resilient they all are and they survived all the abuses and trauma throughout their lives and can say they’re still here and they are survivors.
You’re invited to attend the workshop tomorrow from 9 to 12 at the Friendship Center or from 5:30 to
7:30 in the Flin Flon City Council Chambers.
