Resistance and Renewal
Surviving the Indian Residential School
Author/Illustrator/Editor: Celia Haig-Brown (CA)
One of the first books published to deal with the phenomenon of residential schools in Canada, Resistance and Renewal is a disturbing collection of Native perspectives on the Kamloops Indian Residential School(KIRS) in the British Columbia interior. Interviews with thirteen Natives, all former residents of KIRS, form the nucleus of the book, a frank depiction of school life, and a telling account of the system’s oppressive environment which sought to stifle Native culture.
Winner of the Roderick Haig-Brown Regional Prize (BC Book Prize) in 1989.
Now in its 9th printing.
