In partnership with the St. Clair Student Representative Council (SRC), Thames Students Inc. (TSI), and the University of Windsor’s Turtle Island Aboriginal Education Centre, Indigenous Student Services proudly presents The Impact of Residential Schools with guest speaker Jay Jones.
Jay Jones who is the proud son of Susie and Vernon Jones, both are Shingwauk Residential School Survivors. He considers himself a ‘1st Generation Out Survivor,’ but is also a 5th Generation Indian Residential School Survivor. He is the current president of the Children of Shingwauk Alumni Association and a proud member of Walpole Island First Nation. He is a Designer by trade at General Motors and an advocate of the IRS story and Special Olympic athletes.
This presentation will be centered on the residential school experience and the intergenerational effects of residential schools. Join us to witness and honour the healing journey of Jay, and to commit to the ongoing process of reconciliation.
