"Ray Harris of Stz'uminus and Wendy Grant-John of Musqueam, speak about currency before contact, the meaning of wealth, the relationships between men and women in the old Coast Salish society, equality and survival, and the important role of blankets to the community. (Note: In modern-day Coast Salish longhouse ceremonies, the speaker calls witnesses and they are handed two quarters – 50 cents – in recognition of their role to remember and share the work about to take place. Those two quarters were once the price of a Hudson's Bay blanket in the early days after European contact.)"

"The residential school system is older than Confederation itself, having lasted from 1831 to 1996, and represents a dark aspect of Canadian history. These government-sponsored, church-run schools aimed to assimilate Indigenous children by taking them away from their families and forcibly eradicating their cultural identity. Residential schools have left a horrible legacy that survivors, communities and families are still struggling to overcome and heal from to this day."
