  1. “We go to the schools and they leach the dreams from where our ancestors hid them, in the honeycombs of slushy marrow buried in our bones. And us? Well, we join our ancestors, hoping we left enough dreams behind for the next generation to stumble across.” -Cherie Dimaline

I chose this quote because it’s meaningful towards me because the person who said this quote has gone through a residential school and some of my family members have gone through one in the past
