An Anishinaabe author who authored a book detailing the experiences of more than a dozen residential school survivors in Ontario will finally host an official book launch after two years of waiting in the wings due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Dr. Theresa Turmel will be in Sault Ste. Marie later this month in order to celebrate the release of Mnidoo Bemaasing Bemaadiziwin: Reclaiming, Reconnecting, and Demystifying Resiliency as Life Force Energy for Residential School Survivors — and she’s inviting survivors to share a semi-private, community supper with her as a show of respect for those who endured the residential school system as well as the survivors from Walpole Island First Nation who lent their voices to the book.
