English Abstract

"In the spring of 2008, eight courageous Residential School Survivors, two from each of the Inuit geographic regions – Nunavik, Nunavut, Nunatsiavut, and the Inuvialuit Settlement Region – shared their stories with the Legacy of Hope Foundation. The exhibition, “We were so far away…”: The Inuit Experience of Residential Schools, presents the individual recollections of these Survivors in their own words, illustrated with their personal photographs and objects, and contextualized by historical images gathered from archives across Canada."
