Survivor Series with Blanch Hill-Easton
The last Monday of every month we hold our Survivor Series event from 10am-12pm.
Our Education staff will give our Residential School presentation, providing insight on the history of the Mohawk Institute and residential schools across Canada, as well as a glimpse inside the day to day life of a child at the “Mush Hole.” Afterwards we will be joined by one of our Survivors who will share their stories, and engage with participants in a Q & A.
These Survivor Stories are an important part of understanding the effects of Residential Schools on Indigenous People and they are open to all members of the community.
Limited Seating available. Please email email@example.com to reserve your spot.
