An Indigenous woman tells her story: residential school, addiction, and learning to heal


Canadians are demanding answers after unmarked graves of Indigenous children were found on the grounds of a former residential boarding school in British Columbia. Similar schools existed across Canada and the U.S. aimed at “assimilating” Native peoples by removing them from their culture and language. Muriel Betsina, before her death in 2019, told her story of survival and healing after a harrowing childhood spent in a residential boarding school, recorded in partnership with the Global Reporting Centre as part of the series, “Turning Points.”
