After years of disrepair and memories of abuse, the old school is coming down this week
Sep 23, 2020
To Wanda Good and other members of Gitanyow, the demolition of the Kitwancool Indian Day School’s building this week represents a new chapter in their lives, healing the trauma they suffered during a racist education at the federally operated institution.
On Wednesday, Good conducted a small ceremony at the school she attended from 1972 to 1980, to call back what she believes are the spirits of students that may still linger inside the building after years of abuse.
“We believe that we are our ancestors reincarnated,” she said. “The part of the spirit of that child remains where there was a trauma.”
