June 1, 2021
As we continue to grieve the enormous loss discovered at the former Kamloops Indian Residential School, and reflect on the lasting devastation caused by residential schools, I am reaching out to all Carrier Sekani Family Services staff, clinicians, clients and the families we serve. We must continue to hold each other up and share strength and resilience in the face of these known horrors. The burden you have been made to carry is too heavy.
I stand in solidarity with you – and I know that if we stand together we will thrive together as we move forward. Indigenous people have withstood so much, and it is in our unity, our cultures and our relationships with each other that we build on our many resiliencies.
Today is the first day of June. It’s a hopeful month and one of growth, warmth, food gathering and shared joys. At 2:15pm today I would like to encourage you all to observe a moment of silence and share your love and strength with the children and families whose lives have been lost and continue to be impacted to this day.
Warner Adam, CEO, Carrier Sekani Family Services
