Tracing Memory

A resource that I have found tremendously useful in undertaking my research is Naomi Angel’s Tracing Memory website. The site is a log of her research on memory and the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada for her PhD dissertation at NYU. Beginning in 2008, the year of Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s apology on behalf of all Canadians to survivors of the residential schools, she has charted the progress of the Commission and its role in the memory of the schools.

In particular, I have found useful her documentation of site visits to various former schools, including Portage la Prairie, St. Mary’s, Coqualeetza, and Blue Quills. I have also corresponded with Naomi via e-mail and she kindly offered advice about visiting the schools.
