Music and the anguish of the Native American boarding schools
I was recently looking for Gord Downie’s film, The Secret Path and I couldn’t remember his name, so I was doing a more generic search for pop music that addressed the anguish of the Native American boarding schools.
I found Downie’s film, but I also found this page which has a huge collection of powerful music. I think music helps me feel the depth of the pain that needs to be engaged more than print texts can.
Although if you have not read the US federal report that came out in May of 2022 on this history, you really should do so!
