We are honoured to have Bernie and Ian Gladue share a touching personal story of how they helped their mother Jacqueline recover from the trauma of residential schools by reconnecting her with cultural ceremonies and community support.

This heartwarming tale showcases the power of familial and cultural bonds in providing care and support for our loved ones in need. Indigenous communities have a fundamentally different approach to caring for their elderly compared to Western societies. In many Indigenous cultures, the elderly are revered and respected as important members of the community, with valuable knowledge and wisdom to share. This approach fosters a sense of community and connectedness, and promotes intergenerational learning and sharing of knowledge and traditions.
