Steinhauer III

Near the site where Holy Angels residential school used to stand and overlooking Lake Athabasca, this monument was erected to heal painful memories from the residential school years where native children were subjected to decades of institutionalized physical and mental abuse from their legal guardian and caregiver, the Catholic church. Prayers, wishes and significant objects were sealed inside the monument. But, as a lightning rod, it also provided an outlet for frustration and destruction.

The Dominion is a monthly paper published by an incipient network of independent journalists in Canada. It aims to provide accurate, critical coverage that is accountable to its readers and the subjects it tackles. Taking its name from Canada's official status as both a colony and a colonial force, the Dominion examines politics, culture and daily life with a view to understanding the exercise of power.
