This panel presentation will provide a rare glimpse into the dark corridors of residential schools that generations of Indian children in both Canada and the United States were forced to walk.  Panelists include: Theodore Fontaine who at age 7 was taken from his home and family on Sagkeeng First Nation to a Catholic Mission School, and Kelly Jackson, Lac du Flambeau tribal member, who will discuss why the walls of these institutions need to talk and will illuminate the fight to save her reservation’s boarding school.

Reception following. Sponsorship graciously provided by the Office of Public Affairs, the Les Aspin Center for Government Alumni Council, Student Affairs, the College of English, and the Provost’s Office of Diversity.

    • Americana and Folk singer-songwriter, Marquette alumnus, (and Dr. McCabe’s      

    nephew, no less) will take a break from his popular touring to treat us to an    

    evening of his critically-acclaimed music. 7 PM, Weasler Auditorium.
