Last Day for 100 Years of Loss Exhibition

The Timmins Native Friendship Centre on Kirby Avenue and Balsam St. S. features a powerful exhibition today from 1:30 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. and from 5:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.

Today is the last day of this 2 day exhibition.

 

 

Using archival images and texts, art and first-person statements, 100 Years of Loss presents the full history of the Residential School System in Canada, from the beginnings of colonization through to confederation, the establishment and growth of the System, and its decline. The exhibition also examines recent developments in healing and reconciliation and, in late 2016, will include new components on youth and reconciliation.

The Legacy of Hope Foundation (LHF) is a national Indigenous-led, charitable organization founded in 2000 with the goal of educating and raising awareness about the history and many legacies of the Residential School System. These include the direct and ongoing impacts on First Nation, Métis, and Inuit Survivors, their communities, and their descendants. Our mission is to educate towards creating just and equal relationships of reconciliation and healing for all Canadians, to expand awareness of and access to the rich legacy of the contributions of Indigenous Peoples in Canada and the world, and to make known the histories of Indigenous Peoples in Canada, including the histories of injustice.
