Gary Edwards is a Cultural Support Provider for Residential School Survivors at All Nations Hope in Regina. A survivor himself, Gary was rounded up by a gunboat and issued to a residential school in Ile Ste. Croix at the age of 2. Gary talks about his experience, painting pictures with his words- his phrasing almost poetic. He speaks of his journey to healing, the Indigenous way of life, and the many guides who have supported him on his path. It is my hope, as it is Gary’s, that someone hears this episode who needs to hear it in order to help in their own healing, As Gary says: “Let’s hope that one day this conversations never happens”.
