In Memoriam, Margaret-Olemaun Pokiak-Fenton

We are saddened to hear of the passing of beloved author and residential (boarding) school survivor, Margaret-Olemaun Pokiak-Fenton. She was 84. “Perhaps there is no greater accomplishment in life than to have opened minds and hearts to the human experience. Margaret's stories, rooted in agency and resiliency, have had an impact on countless people. When youth learn about residential schools it is through Margaret's eyes. She continues to be a hero and an inspiration by fostering awareness through testimony,” said Rick Wilks, Annick Co-publisher. Here are Margaret's books, co-authored with Christy Jordan-Fenton.
