Since the last post about the Canadian Residential schools, I have been listening to the podcast " Missing and Murdered, Finding Cleo"
It's hosted by Connie Walker who is Cree and it is done by the CBC. It is absolutely excellent. The seasons are on the surface about trying to solve deaths of two Indigenous women/girls, but she uses that as a jumping off point to go into depth about how cultural trauma like residential schools and the "sixties scoop" of adoptions has had a lasting impact.
I just wanted to post this as a resource for anyone looking to learn more. It's very sad, but also shows the resilience of the children and people.

I "liked" the series about Alberta Williams very much. I thought that her story challenged stereotypes of women who have disappeared along the highway and the way that it was covered..it seems like she lived in a close knit community and was killed by someone in that community. I think they have an idea of the murderer.
