In honour of the lives of the two hundred fifteen children found on the former Kamloops Residential School grounds
My grandfather (Mac MacLeod) built his cottage on the Hiawatha First Nation lands in 1951. My memories of time spent there are the most precious of my life and I have come back to visit many times as Hiawatha still lives in my heart. I send my love and support to you as you once again mourn the tragedies inflicted upon your people. I am forever grateful to have spent the summers of the first 10 years of my life on Hiawatha and recognize that we settlers and our country owe a great deal to your people in restitution and reconciliation. In honour of the lives of these precious children, may we find a way forward.
