In Honour of the 215
In honour of the 215 children found buried on the site of a residential school in Kamloops, British Columbia, Edmonton Catholic Schools’ Indigenous Learning Services led a special broadcast for our schools and sites. The 15-minute broadcast aired on Tuesday, June 1. It featured an Honour Song performed by ECSD Cultural Facilitators Aaron Zorthian, Lloyd Cardinal, and former Ben Calf Robe student Bradley Faithful. It was followed by a prayer in Cree and English from Elder Betty Letendre, Manager of Edmonton Catholic Schools Council of Elders and ended in a moment of silence.
