For more than 150 years, thousands of Indigenous children were taken from their families and sent to residential schools across Canada.
Artist Carey Newman created the Witness Blanket to make sure that history is never forgotten. The Blanket is a living work of art -- a collection of hundreds of object connected to every residential school. Behind every piece is a story, and behind every story is a residential school Survivor, including Carey's father.
This book is a collection of truths about what happened at those schools, but it's also a beacon of hope and a step on the journey toward reconciliation.
