Jason Parenteau

Biography

Boozhoo. I just want to thank you for taking the time to take a look at this video that I put together. It’s pretty personal. It’s about my upbringing, my experience here, and how residential school has influenced my life and my family, directly and indirectly. A lot of what you’re going to see in my video is about some of the changes that I’ve made personally for my children, and my family, in a good way.

The things that you don’t see in the video is all the hard work that had to go into it to get to the point of where my life is today. A lot of things had to change. I hope you realize that people are still going through a lot of the issues that go along with residential school. I am putting this out there to help encourage people to understand that and that those who might be looking for those changes in life can have a bit of hope that it can be done. In a good way, I want to thank you for taking the time to look at this video.
