Hali McKelvie, Grant Coordinator Assistant Manager for the Sexual Violence Services and Anishnaabek Community and Family Services/Advocacy Resource Center, spoke at the Tribal-State Partnership meeting at Kewadin Casino on January 18, 2023. Hali spoke to Tribal, and State representatives about the history of Residential Boarding Schools and the impact the schools had on our Native ancestors and future generations. The Community quilt was on display for those in attendance.
The finished Community Quilt created by various members of our communities far and wide to honor and remember Residential Boarding School Children. The quilt was completed by tribal members Sue Garrett and Mary Ann Hussey. Remaining squares will be added to another quilt in the near future.
The "back side" of the Community Quilt. If you can see the stitching of the quilt is fashioned in the shape of tiny hands. The quilt is absolutely gorgeous and we couldn't have done it without our wonderful community. Miigwech!
