Health Sciences North Honours National Day for Truth and Reconciliation
HSN healthcare workers took part in traditional ceremonies today, led by Indigenous Knowledge Keepers and the hospital’s Indigenous Health Team, to honour survivors, the children who lost their lives, and the families and communities forever affected by the residential school system.
As part of the ceremonies, a sacred fire was ignited at the Ramsey Lake Health Centre, followed by a pipe and water ceremony. A prayer and memorial offering for the children was led by Rosella Kinoshameg, HSN Board member and a survivor of residential school.
