The first book of its kind, Resistance and Renewal is a fascinating collection of Native perspectives on the Kamloops Indian Residential School, and a more general overview of the evolution of Native education. Thirteen interviews with Native people, all former students of K.I.R.S. form the nucleus of the book – a frank depiction of various aspects of school life, and a telling account of the resistance movement against the system’s oppressive environment which sought to stifle Native culture.
