abstract
"When residential schools opened in the 1830s, First Nations envisioned their children learning in a nurturing environment, staffed with their own teachers, ministers, and interpreters. Instead, students were taught by outsiders, regularly forced to renounce their cultures and languages, and some were subjected to degradations and abuses that left severe emotional scars for generations." "In Finding My Talk, fourteen Aboriginal women who attended residential schools, or whose lives were affected by the schools, reflect on their experiences. They describe their years in residential schools across Canada and how they overcame tremendous obstacles to become strong and independent members of Aboriginal cultures. Dr. Agnes Grant's painstaking research and interview methods ensure that it is the women's voices we hear in Finding My Talk, and that these women are viewed as members of today's global society, not only as victims of their past.
