In response to the Truth and Reconciliation Commission's 2015 Calls to Action, ‍‍ Josh Hellyer was invited on a journey to collect one-on-one interviews with survivors of the Indian Residential School System The following interviews are to serve as a piece of historical documentation as well as an education mechanism for generations of Canadians to learn about the legacy of the Residential School System.

At the request of the survivors the interviews remain largely unedited or enhanced (except during instances of technical disruption).

These videos are free for use by anyone, with only traditional broadcast limitations.

Special thanks to the Woodlands Cultural Centre.
