Seven Fallen Feathers should be required reading for all Canadians ...

Seven Fallen Feathers should be required reading for all Canadians. It takes us beyond the tragedy of historical Residential Schools to the realization that Indigenous parents STILL have to send their children into danger, hundreds of miles away from everything they have known, in order to attend high school. It points to the inadequacies and inherent racism of our policing, our justice systems, and most particularly our lack of commitment to treaty rights (and basic human rights). I was left with the deepest respect for the families and communities struggling both to deal with the deaths of these children, and to protect the young people still at risk.
