Join us in the homelands of the Tulalip Tribes as we come together from all over Turtle Island for a national discussion on boarding school truth, healing, and justice.

Topics to be covered:

  • Truth in History—the facts about U.S. Indian Boarding Schools
  • Oral Histories—sharing our stories and honoring our memories
  • Impacts—understanding and confronting intergenerational trauma
  • Healing—transcending the pain and honoring our Indigenous life ways

We hope to see boarding school survivors and descendants, youth, tribal leaders, and anyone working on understanding and addressing the impacts of Indian boarding schools at the conference in Tulalip this fall!
