The struggle to define the relationship of aboriginal and non-aboriginal Canadians to each other, and to the rest of the world, began in the 1600s with the colonization of the New World. That struggle continues to this day.
Indian Residential Schools were a part of that struggle for over 100 years, and since the late 1980s many people have told their stories of life at one or another of those schools. Cyprian's Way is our story.
Included in this book are the actual words written by students and staff of St. Cyprian's Indian Residential School in their 1956 - 1959 school newsletters. We are proud to share them with our readers.
Laura Harris Stanger devoted many years of her adult life to working in Indian residential schools, and she fondly remembers her years at St. Cyprian's as a special time when her skills were challenged and stretched, and her life's values enriched by staff and pupils at the school, and by the people on the Peigan Reserve at Brocket, Alberta.
