The Union of Ontario Indians received funding through the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada to develop tools and erect a monument to pay tribute to Anishinabek Nation members who attended Indian Residential School. The project is entitled "Honouring Our Children, Families, and Communities Affected by Indian Residential Schools".
As part of the project, a series of five educational videos were created that examine Indian Residential Schools from different perspectives. The videos feature Anishinabek Nation Grand Council Chief Patrick Wedaseh Madahbee; Deputy Grandc Council Chief Glen Hare; M'Chigeeng First Nation Citizens/Toronto residents Krystine and Eve Abel; and Brian Nootchtai, Mental Health Case Worker at the N'Mninoeyaa Aboriginal Health Access Centre in Cutler, Ontario.
