In the early 1960s kids as young as six-years-old were chosen to take part in an art class while attending the Port Alberni Indian Residential School.

In a solemn ceremony this past weekend the artists were reunited with the artwork they created as children.

Artwork some had no memory of ever doing.

  1. No flash at work. Any chance you can include screen grabs with this story? Would be great to pin it on pinterest so I can read it after work.
