Haig-Brown, Celia. (1988).
Resistance and Renewal : Surviving the Indian Residential School.
Vancouver. Tillacum Library, Arsenal Pulp Press Ltd.
0-88978-189-3.
"The elimination of language has always been a primary stage in a process of cultural genocide. This was the primary function of the residential school. My father was physically tortured by his teachers for speaking Tseshaht: they pushed sewing needles through his tongue, a routine punishment for language offenders?The needle tortures suffered by my father affected all my family. My dad's attitude was "why teach my children Indian if they are going to be punished for speaking it?" (Randy Fred, p. 16).

This collection of First Nations Peoples stories and views on the Kamloops Indian Residential School in British Columbia serves two main purposes. First, to provide a written history of the residential school system in Canada, from the perspective of First Nations Peoples themselves, not as a rationale by government or missionaries. Second, the book sets out to provide a limited overview on the evolution of First Nations Peoples Education in Canada. Despite the wide-spread injustices that First Nations students faced, what is of particular interest in this book is the First Nations resistance movement that developed against the residential schools for control over their own education and destiny.
