Rosemarie Erb – Nbisiing Secondary School

Submitted By: Rosemarie Erb

My mom has been gone five years now-she never really talked much about her time at the Spanish Residential school in northern Ontario until she wrote this short story. My grandmother went to the same Residential school and as an adult she suffered with sore and crooked feet from wearing shoes that were too small for while at the Spanish Residential school.
Now is the time for Truth & Reconciliation. At this time, I finally feel strong enough now to share my moms short story.
