Don't Make a Mistake

Don’t Make a Mistake

- Nishnawbe Aski Nation, 2005 -

You asked me if I knew why I got spanked and got the strap when I was at residential school. I remember that when I got a spanking it was usually because I had gotten into a fight with one of the other boys or something like that. And when I got the strap it was always because I made a mistake while I was doing something. So I used to tell the other kids, “Don’t Make a Mistake”.
