In part 2 of this special edition of the Empathetic Witness podcast, the interviewee again is the hostess of the podcast herself, Angelina Pratt and the guest host is Alan Pratt, Angelina's husband of 29 years and a lawyer for First Nations across Canada. Angelina talks in more detail about her personal experiences at Holy Angels Mission, and the discussion goes deeper into the broader importance of the residential school experience both as part of a broader deliberate plan to undermine First Nations by Canada and as part of a necessary ongoing need to educate the Canadian public about these issues. If you wish to go deeper on your own, here are some resources:
