Tsqelmucwilc: we return to being human again - sharing the stories of survivors of the Kamloops Indian Residential School

Celia Haig-Brown and Randy Fred recently finished a tour to promote Tsqelmucwilc, a book that shares the testimonies of survivors of the Kamloops Indian Residential School.

Tsqelmucwilc is a Secwepemc phrase that loosely translates to “we return to being human again”.

The book builds on Haig-Brown and Fred’s work in Resistance and Renewal a 1988 book credited with being among the first published in Canada to document the residential school experience from the perspective of survivors.
