The next ‘step’ (phase?) in this process is for me to begin unpacking everything I have learned thus far…however, I have been extensively avoiding this task:

  • I am feeling discomforted (I am scared, overwhelmed – why?).
  • I am feeling guilty (why had I not learned about this [Colonization, Residential Schools, Reconciliation] until recently [upon entering University]?).
  • I am feeling outraged (I feel as though my ignorance (lack of knowing) in  some ways has contributed to the reproduction of oppression towards Aboriginal Peoples).
  • I am feeling heartbroken (putting things into perspective…wishing I could even come close to understanding)….
