This project is dedicated to our late sister-storyteller, Claudette Lizette Michell (1966 – 2012), Rattle That Glows in the Dark and Turtle Shooting Star Woman. Claudette was a patient, understanding and utterly beautiful woman who touched our lives with sincere and inspirational messages of hope. We will forever cherish the precious times we shared with Claudette.
Between 2010 and 2014, four digital storytelling processes took place in Winnipeg, Manitoba on the intergenerational effects of residential schools. Working with thirty-two First Nations and Métis women and men, each of these digital story processes looked at deepening the conversation and understanding of how the legacy of residential schools has affected the descendants of survivors. 24 of these videos are available for viewing on this website. You can read more about each process below.
This website has been made possible through funding provided by the Aboriginal Healing Foundation.
