resource image

In this 3-hour session, we learn about the life and times of Karrie-Lynn, who is a two-spirit knowledge keeper and residential school survivor. Stories like this are important to hear to understand the issues and trauma Indigenous and 2SLGBTQIA+ older adults may have experienced that affect their lives today, the health issues they are experiencing, and the systemic barriers they still face. By understanding these issues and trauma, Community-Based Senior Serving providers can better support older adults in your region.

Trigger Warning: Indigenous Residential Schools, abuse and more heavy topics
