The hope of this piece is to give hope and freedom to the original 215 found and the ones still being found.

In May of 2021, 215 children were found on the grounds of the former residential school in Kamloops, British Columbia. In Canada there were 139 residential schools, these grounds are still being searched. The current number of graves and children found is staggering and continues to grow.

These feathers represent the first 215 children found and the children that followed. Hanging these feathers allows them to have freedom of movement again. This piece is a reminder that this is ongoing, and that we cannot forget the children that were found and how incredibly strong and resilient the survivors are.

Every child matters.
