Statement from the Office of the Chief: Honouring the courage of Indian Residential School Survivors and their families by upholding the truth of their lived experience and calling out misinformation

Posted on: April 10, 2024

Time and again, Survivors have shown incredible courage to step forward. They were pivotal to the National Truth and Reconciliation Commission. Recently, in British Columbia, they stepped up again – such as the Lhtako Dene Survivors speaking in Council Chambers in Quesnel, the Survivors who helped the Ahousaht investigation or the Survivors who have shared vital information in our investigation of the Kamloops Indian Residential School. Now is the time for allies to be unrelenting in upholding the truth and calling out misinformation.
