Canada's relationship with its Indigenous people has suffered as a result of both the residential school system and the lack of understanding of the historical and current impact of those schools. Healing and repairing that relationship requires education, awareness and increased understanding of the legacy and the impacts still being felt by survivors and their families. Guided by acclaimed Indigenous author Monique Gray Smith, readers will learn about the lives of Survivors and listen to allies who are putting the findings of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission into action.

Monique Gray Smith explores the topic of the residential school system, its impacts, and paths to allyship and reconciliation in this approachable book for all children. Smith grounds her work with context, but keeps interest with photos and illustrations, along with text boxes to explain complex terms and ideas, and gives the topic a human face with stories of adults and children who have been affected by the residential school system in a variety of ways.
