Residential School Presentation: Scars to Stars
Thursday, September 29, 2022
Angus Cockney, a long-time Bow Valley resident, is a 13-year Residential School Survivor who was also orphaned at age eight. His presentation, "Scars and Stars," outlines that life is not without its scars. However, by sharing his story, he inspires others to move forward; in other words, one needs to feed their destiny more than their history. Please join the Whyte Museum and Angus Cockney on September 29th at 7 p.m. as we prepare for a day of reflection on the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation (September 30). This presentation is in person at the Whyte Museum of the Canadian Rockies at 7:00 p.m. Tickets are free. Online registration is encouraged.
We encourage participants to gather with us again on October 1 from 2 to 3:00 p.m. on the museum grounds around a fire to share what you did on September 30 with local Indigenous community members in attendance. Light refreshments will be served.
