kiskinohamâtôtâpânâsk : Inter-generational Effects on Professional First Nations Women Whose Mothers are Residential School Survivors
Project # 236
The Prairie Women’s Health Centre of Excellence
Over 2010/2011, Prairie Women’s Health Centre of Excellence (PWHCE) set out to understand the inter-generational legacy of residential schools on First Nations women. The following report kiskinohamâtôtâpânâsk: Inter-generational Effects on Professional First Nations Women Whose Mothers are Residential School Survivors provides the findings of this exploratory project. This research involved a process of documenting, in six First Nations women’s own words and “digital stories”, their unique understandings of how they have been individually and collectively affected by their mothers’ attendance at residential schools.
