Ceramic Seasonal Bookworms Winter It’s Snowing I Should Stay Inside And Read Mug

In my life and in my work, I have met many residential school survivors, many of whom have shared their stories with me. The stories are hard to hear and some of them haunt me.

Every residential school ­survivor I have met said they were called stupid so many times that they often believed it.

Our children in school today are taught to think creatively and to solve problems. They are told about their potential and that hard work pays off. This is not the experience I hear from residential school survivors.

In What Happened to You, a new book by Bruce D. Perry and Oprah Winfrey, they explain that, often, when someone’s behaviour is troubling to others, we are quick to think: “What is wrong with you?” Often these behaviours are the result of trauma and our response should be: “What happened to you?”

We all know the stereotypes in our society around Indigenous people, and so often people get caught up in these stereotypes and ask the question: “What is wrong with you?”

The 215 children who were buried at Kamloops Indian ­Residential School have shook our nation and people are ­saddened, outraged and ­horrified. We should remember that those children had families and their family members are still affected.

These traumas affect future generations. The school is ­Kamloops is just one residential school in Canada, there are more stories.

We all have bias, it is ­inevitable. This week, I­ encourage readers to look within and identify your own bias. If there is some bias towards ­Indigenous people, think of these 215­ children, their stories and their families, and then ask the ­question: “What happened to you?”
