Walking Together Art Exhibition – the Indian Residential School Experience

Explore this Indigenous art project that brought together teenagers from Pauline Johnson Collegiate with former students who attended The Mohawk Institute in Brantford. These courageous survivors shared their stories of pain, isolation, loneliness and abuse during their years at the school while walking the grounds and inside the very building that forever changed the trajectory of their life’s journey.
Indigenous land, status, communities and self-sovereignty were governed by the Indian Act of 1876, which also established residential schools operated by Catholic, Protestant and Anglican churches from 1831-1996. The overarching goal of the Residential School system was to divest Indigenous Peoples of their Traditional Knowledge and thereby their attachment to their Territories within a few generations. Children who attended these schools were not allowed to speak their language or practice their traditional ways. The children experienced severe physical, mental, spiritual and sexual abuse that continues to have long-lasting effects on current and future generations.
