The Omushkego People extend our support to the families that continue to endure the intergenerational trauma created by the St. Mary’s Indian Residential School in Kenora located on Treaty 3 Territory.
The stories of our own people is vindication enough for us to hold true the deaths of our children and the painful experiences that we endured at the hands of these genocidal institutions.
For us to have to fight this hard to convince this country that this is part their history is proof that the necessary change to foster true reconciliation remains far out of reach.
We as First Nations must continue to support each other and hear the stories of our own people. The truth lies within us and requires no vindication from anyone else.
We support you and your efforts to find light in the darkness of the wake that Residential School has left your people in.
Please take care of each other and you are in our prayers.
