Living Healing Quilt Project
Promoting Healing – One Stitch at a Time

This post is part of the Living Healing Quilt Project that honours the strength, courage, and commitment of Indian Residential School Survivors. This quilt block is from Quilt 3 – Child Prisoners.

This square was quilted by Lugaganowals (Trudy Spiller). I am Gitxsan in British Columbia and I belong to the House of Gwinintxw of the Wolf Clan. I am a member of the Hospital Employees’ Union which is over 60 years old. HEU is the healthcare sector in British Columbia for Canadian Union of Public Employees.

In 1996 a constitutional amendment was adopted at convention to form four equity standing committees: First Nations, Ethnic Diversity, Gays, Bisexual, Lesbians and Transgender and People With Disabilities. I am presently the Chairperson for HEU First Nation standing committee and I also sit on CUPE National Aboriginal Council from our committee. This square is dedicated to all HEU and CUPE Brothers and Sisters that attended residential schools.

In Solidarity, Trudy Spiller, Hospital Employees’ Union and CUPE Nations Aboriginal Council
