Tebatchimowin – an Algonquin word rooted in teboai, meaning truth. It is a complete account or report on an event or subject.
This resource consists of six activities, each of which examines an aspect of the history or legacy of the Residential School System. It is our hope that the information and activities will give both facilitators and participants the resources they need to examine the history of the Residential School System and to recognize the impact it has had, and continues to have, on generations of Aboriginal peoples in Canada.
This guide was developed under the auspices of a joint Indian residential school commemoration project
between the Wabano Centre for Aboriginal Health and the Legacy of Hope Foundation (LHF). Funding for this publication was provided by Aboriginal Affairs and Northern Development Canada (Truth and Reconciliation Commission Commemoration Fund).
