A powerful, raw memoir about the abuse former First Nations chief Edmund Metatawabin endured in residential school in the 1960s. Even as Metatawabin built the trappings of a successful life, he was tormented by horrific memories. In seeking healing, Metatawabin travelled to southern Alberta. There he learned from elders, participated in native cultural training workshops that emphasize the holistic approach to personhood, and finally faced his alcoholism and PTSD. Now his mission is to help the next generation of residential school survivors. Bestseller. Winner of the 2015 Speaker's Book Award. c2014.
