Background

Before bringing the memorial register into this book form we sought the advice, guidance and blessings of Elders, Survivors and Knowledge Keepers at the National Gathering of Elders. The Elders and Knowledge Keepers performed the ceremony to help the children listed within this register find their way home.

The Elders emphasized all nations, customs and traditions must be respected in honouring these children. Following the direction provided at the National Gathering of Elders, this book is available to assist and enable further ceremonies in traditional territories.

This book represents yet another starting place on our collective journey of honouring and remembering the children lost to the Residential School system. There are still more children to be found.
