The National Advisory Committee on missing children and unmarked graves hosted a community event in Truro Saturday to bring together the voices of residential school survivors.

“To be able to come together and offer that support and be able to share those stories and share those steps on that journey to healing is important,” said Harley Crowshoe, member on the National Advisory Committee.

The goal of the event is to highlight the voices of survivors in Atlantic Canada and build relationships with them, said Kisha Supernant, member of the National Advisory Committee and director of the Institute of Indigenous Archaeology at the University of Alberta.

“Taking away where some of the gaps and barriers might be for the community,” Supernant said. “Meaning we can develop resources or provide additional information be able to continue the support so this is not just a one-off event, but really the start of a relationship.”
