In 1966, 12-year-old Chanie Wenjack froze to death on the railway tracks after running away from residential school. An inquest was called, and four recommendations were made to prevent another tragedy. None of those recommendations were applied. More than a quarter of a century later, from 2000 to 2011, seven Indigenous high school students died in Thunder Bay, Ontario. The seven were hundreds of miles away from their families, forced to leave home and live in a foreign and unwelcoming city.
Essential reading for Canadians

On a recommendation from keynote speaker and Global Teacher prize winner Maggie MacDonnell at the People for Education conference this past weekend.. I grabbed the audiobook for my drive home.
Seven Fallen Feathers is a meticulously researched and haunting account of the mysterious deaths of 7 indigenous youth in Thunder Bay, Ontario. The events leading up to and surrounding each of their untimely demise, the generations-long history of family trauma and suffering.. this book begs so many more questions than it answers, but is a MUST read!
My heart aches for these lost souls and those who surround them.
If you are looking for something thought provoking and REAL.. this is it!
