“It turned into being a sharing circle and that’s a part of traditional beliefs and traditional healing process,” she says of today’s introductions. “It turned into people just wanted to share and just wanted to be heard.”

Tom-Lindley says the IRSSS provides service to residential school survivors and inter-generational survivors at 8 offices located throughout the province.

She says the Society was closed for close to over a year before returning to Williams Lake.
