Dragged to School
- Nishnawbe Aski Nation, 2005 -
One day in the late summer of 1962, my parents said that my sister and I had to go to residential school. They started to pack my sister’s clothes. When they started to pack my clothes, I knew that I would be leaving with my sister. But I did not want to go away so I ran into the bush and hid. When it was time to go they carried our things to the airplane and put them inside. My sister was waiting and ready to go, but I wasn’t. They eventually found me, but they had to drag me to the airplane while I was kicking, screaming and crying.
