As part of Truth and Reconciliation week, Lethbridge College is unveiling a new exhibit that will showcase some of the experiences of the Sixties Scoop survivors. The Manager of Indigenous Services at the College, Lowell Yellowhorn, says this type of exhibit is important as it will educate the students about many on-going past and present challenges Indigenous people face.
“One of those issues is the child welfare system. You know there are a lot of children who have been impacted by child welfare challenges. It’s not just inclusive of just residential schools we have to factor in a lot of education into all the systematic challenges that indigenous people have faced over the years,” said Lowell Yellowhorn, Manager of Indigenous Services at Lethbridge College.
Truth and Reconciliation week at the college begins on Tuesday September 27.
