“100 Years of Loss” a kit, not a book


In the article titled “Residential school high school program for Nunavut students launched Oct. 2” the author writes:

“It will also contain the personal stories of former residential school students, like Marius Tungilik, who shared his experiences in a book that will be used for the course, called “100 Years of Loss.”

The LHF would like to clarify that there will not be a book published called “100 Years of Loss.” 100 Years of Loss is actually an education program of the Legacy of Hope Foundation — a program that included an Edu-kit that is designed for teachers and a mobile exhibition.

More information on this program can be found on” title=“our website:”>our website:

The curriculum mentioned in the article is the result of a partnership between the Legacy of Hope Foundation and the departments of education for the Northwest Territories and Nunavut. LHF’s press release about the unveiling of the NWT-NU curriculum can be found here:

We thank the Nunatsiaq News for publishing articles about the important issue of residential schools.
