RJS Edmonton

On May 12th, 2013, Red Jam Slam hosted the Edmonton Slam, coordinated by Carrie Lawrence and Donald Morin. This Slam had a great line up of participants and performers from the Alberta community.

With the focus of the 'intergenerational survivor' in mind, the Edmonton Slam was an empowering event that displayed how the generations beyond the direct survivors deal with what has become known as multi-generational grief. Healing happens in many forms and these Slam Events themselves become a catalyst for healing for all generations of the Residential School experience.

Food was provided by Native Delights, and the panel discussion was moderated by Jodi Stonehouse, host of "Acimowin today!" on CJSR.
