Preserve Your Records
Preserving and sharing the records and history of Canada’s residential school system is a sacred obligation. The NCTR is a safe and secure space for Indigenous histories and other materials for Indigenous communities. We invite Survivors, their families, and others whose lives have been impacted by residential schools to continue to share your truths and experiences in any form you wish.
Share Your Experience

NCTR’s spirit name – bezhig miigwan, meaning “one feather”.
Bezhig miigwan calls upon us to see each Survivor coming to the NCTR as a single eagle feather and to show those Survivors the same respect and attention an eagle feather deserves. It also teaches we are all in this together — we are all one, connected, and it is vital to work together to achieve reconciliation.
