In this collaboration between Marilyn Simon Ingram (IRS survivor and advocate), Barb Martin and Outreach Productions, Indian Residential School survivors in Atlantic Canada reflect on their experiences with the Shubenacadie Residential School in central Nova Scotia.

The participants are from three First Nations in New Brunswick, and the DVD is structured in three separate sections to give voice to members of each of those nations--Tobique (19 minutes), Elsipogtog (18 minutes) and Esgenoôpetitj (18 minutes). Their recollections are echoed by subsequent generations who were affected deeply as the impact of trauma is transferred from generation to generation.

The Shubenacadie Residential School operated from 1928 to 1967, taking children from four Atlantic provinces and eastern Québec. Stories shared by brave survivors illustrate the destructive impact Canada's Indian Residential School system had on its Indigenous people and their descendants.

"We will continue to tell our stories so that this will never happen again."  Marilyn Simon Ingram
