Episodes Notes

At the age of 8, Raymond Mason was taken from his home in Peguis First Nation and sent to a residential school. He would stay there until the day he turned 18.

He is just one of the 150,000 Indigenous children who were taken from their families and forced into Indian day and residential schools. 

A riveting and at times harrowing story, Raymond Mason describes his experiences in Indian day and residential schools in Manitoba and his struggles to find meaning in life after trauma and abuse.
