Awasisuk is about intergenerational healing and the process of moving forward to create not only a better future for ourselves but for our children as well.
Part of the inspiration for this piece is the “Every Child Matters” movement. When the news of discovering unmarked graves began to circulate, I saw a good deal of unhealed hurt and intergenerational trauma surface in many people in my community. This movement brought the truth to people across the world and with it an acknowledgement of the intergenerational trauma that residential schools and colonization have caused and continue to cause.
