“I wanted to address the injustices against Indigenous people and the intergenerational trauma that is ongoing. These feelings, combined with a powerful presentation by DesCan National President Mark Rutledge on the history and future of Indigenous people regarding Residential schools, moved me with the idea of reconciliation as it brought hope back into this subject.” — Manesha Dulay
“Excellent, understated concepting and presentation of ideas, materials and subject matter here.”
“This project was so well designed, unique and well thought out. I loved the idea of engraving the statements and facts in the wood, as a reminder of the effects of the residential school system.”
