Seven Fallen Feathers

โ€œIf we want to talk about reconciliation, we need to first talk about basic human rights for every child in this countryโ€ Tanya Talaga – author of Seven Fallen Feathers.

Thank you Tanya for sharing the story of the seven fallen feathers who went missing in Thunder Bay between 2000 to 2011 at the Health Quality Transformation Conference today. Thank you for sharing the words of Pearl on her last conversation with her brother Chanie Wenjack before he boarded the plane to Cecilia Jeffrey Indian Residential School in 1966 and went missing after running away a month later. Thank you for sharing the stories of inequality and inequity to the indigenous communities in Northern Ontario. I am thankful I was able to experience this incredibly powerful and moving speech. It moved me to tears. Every Canadian should add Seven Fallen Feathers to their reading list.
