Marjorie Flowers - The Inuit Experience Of Residential Schools

Marjorie Flowers.jpgMarjorie Flowers was 13 years old when she was sent to North West River to go to highschool. She lived in residence there for 3 years. And she was allowed to go back home to Makkovik only twice a year. Flowers’ story is a part of an exhibit profiling the Inuit experience of residential school across the North. It’s now in Happy Valley-Goose Bay after visiting Nain and Rigolet. Labrador Morning’s John Gaudi met up with Marjorie Flowers to speak with her about the exhibit.
