“It took me long time to trust white people. Really long. Because they were commanding us, telling us they were the bosses and stuff. It took a while. But now I’ve dealt with my Residential school and I can talk to people, but I also let em know.
That’s how I get comfortable with white people, help ’em come to my page.”
