This piece is called Their Story Must be Told. I picked it because I want to encourage survivors of residential schools to tell their story to add to the history of aboriginal people. I think the assimilation of aboriginal children isn't talked about enough, especially in schools. I have heard about the holocaust in nearly every grade since elementary school and residential schools mentioned only once or twice. I wanted to paint a picture to honor the survivors and deceased who were apart of it.
