WHITEHORSE INDIAN MISSION SCHOOL, SURVIVOR GATHERING
At Helen's Fish Camp, on the traditional territory of the Ta'an Kwachan council, this camp was held for survivors of the Whitehorse Indian Mission School. Over three days survivors and their families came together and shared memories, identified people in pictures from the residential school, and participated in activities such as drum making and cedar weaving.
