The 100 Years of Loss mobile exhibition explores the history of the Residential School System and traces its legacy to the present. 100 Years of Loss uses archival and contemporary photographs, works of art, primary documents, and recent research to reveal the histories of First Nations, Inuit, and Métis children who were forcibly removed from their families and institutionalized in residential schools. The distinct features of 100 Years of Loss are the depth of the historical perspective and the breadth of the information presented. The story begins in the early days of European expansion into North America, and continues up to and including the decades of advocacy and healing efforts by Aboriginal peoples, the Indian Residential Schools Settlement Agreement, the 2008 federal apology to Survivors and their families, and the establishment of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission in 2009. One of the greatest strengths of this exhibition is its focus on the legacy of the IRS System, and in particular, its enduring impacts on Survivors and their descendants, on communities, and on Canada as a nation. The exhibition clearly shows the direct links between the Residential School System and the contemporary social crises afflicting Aboriginal communities across the country. Everyone is welcome to attend.

Listening to Young Voices of La Loche: A photovoice presentation

Thunder Bay has a chance to hear from the young people of La Loche Saskatchewan, a community that was changed forever by a tragic shooting in 2016. One of the four people who lost their lives was Adam Wood, a graduate of Lakehead University who had recently left Thunder Bay to start his teaching career in the community.

In a statement to the media, the Wood family emphasized:

"Rather than looking for someone to blame, or coming up with outsider opinions of reasons why this occurred, we must stop and listen to the voices of La Loche. The leaders and members of the community know what types of support and changes are needed. Our responsibility as a nation is to listen and respond to create lasting systemic change."

On Wednesday, March 28, Adam's sister, Caitlin Wood, will present her Master's research dedicated to giving the youth of La Loche a chance to be heard. Her project demonstrates how research can be both deeply meaningful and a means to individual and community healing.

Caitlin provided young people in the community with cameras to take photographs that reflect the positive influences in their lives, what changes they want to see, and what they feel childhood should look like.

Consistent with the spirit and methodology of her project, Caitlin has brought along Jazz Moise, a participant in the research and a student from La Loche, as a co-presenter.

This event will take place at Lakehead University in the School of Nursing Building, room SN 1015, from 7 to 9:30pm. Following the presentation, the floor will be opened to a panel discussion on how we can best listen and respond to the voices of Indigenous youth.

This event is made possible by generous contributions from the Outdoor Recreation Students' Society, Lakehead University's Senate Research Council, Grassroots Church, Lakehead University's Faculty of Social Sciences and Humanities, Aboriginal Initiatives, Roots to Harvest, and Thunder Bay Fireplaces.
