Reconciliation. I want to share my experiences as a survivor of the effects of intergenerational trauma flowing from Residential Schools. I would also like to have an impact on other youth in the program who come from different walks of life. Also to regain the experience of re-connecting with my cultural roots. I want to gain a better understanding of restorative justice, and to enhance my community advocacy skills, and conflict resolution skills. I am currently trying to improve my relationships with my children because they have also been affected by intergenerational trauma. It is important that I build awareness and understanding in my family about reconciliation so that we can have a better future. I want to be an example in my community.
