Understanding the nature of the Indian Residential School Program and its impacts is critical to healing the ongoing harms. Robinson, a Métis lawyer from Edmonton, adjudicated Indian Residential School claims from 2004 to 2016. He shares his perspective about Indian Residential Schools, perseverance, hope and the role we all play in building a better future, together.

The Amiskwaciy History Series is an Indigenous grassroots initiative aimed at building awareness around the often untold Indigenous history of the Edmonton area. Through free monthly educational sessions, the series aims to provide accessible and culturally appropriate education to the public on Indigenous history as lived and told by the people.

The name Amiskwaciy comes from Amiskwaciy Waskahikan or “Beaver Hill House,” a Cree term used to describe the Edmonton area.
