Residential School Dedication Window

On November 26, 2012, the Government of Canada commemorated the Legacy of Indian Residential Schools through the dedication of a stained glass window in Parliament. The window is permanently installed in Centre Block on Parliament Hill. This video highlights the making of the stained glass window, interview with the artist, as well as interviews with former Indian Residential School students on the day of the dedication ceremony.
