Lorena Fontaine, Associate Professor of Indigenous Studies at Winnipeg University
Release Date: October 18, 2012 NationTalk has the privilege of talking to Lorena Fontaine, Associate Professor of Indigenous Studies at Winnipeg University. The university recently received a $500,000 grant to study the intergenerational impacts of Canada’s residential schools system. As part of the project, researchers will speak with aboriginal men who were raised by those who were students of residential schools. The latest study builds on similar research that was carried out in 2010, when six aboriginal women shared their stories of being raised by mothers who had to attend the schools. Lorena talks about how the project came about and the tragic legacy that 100 years of residential schools have left on the Indigenous community worldwide.
