Honouring Memories: The Heart Garden
The Heart Garden decorations around our campus are to honour the children lost to the Indian Residential School System and their families. The Honouring Memories: Planting Dreams project is an initiative with the First Nations Child and Caring Society of Canada, led by Dr. Cindy Blackstock. Watch this video of Dr. Blackstock describing the Heart Gardens.
Hearts will be displayed around campus from May 31 to June 6, 2015.
This initiative is sponsored by: CUPE 4207 – Indigenous Solidarity Committee, Tecumseh Centre for Aboriginal Research and Education, and the Social Justice Research Institute
