Geronimo's Dream - Donations
Geronimo Henry is a residential school survivor. He was brought to the Mohawk Institute Residential School in Brantford, ON at the age of 5 where he remained for 11 years. Referred to by a number instead of his name, Geronimo was forbidden from speaking his native language and stripped of his culture.
Geronimo now spends his time sharing his story to educate all people on the realities of residential schools, the impact of inter-generational trauma and why it is critical that everyone is aware of this.
Geronimo's dream is to build a monument in memory of those who, like himself, suffered and continue to suffer because of this experience. There are no words to express how much this would mean to Geronimo to build this monument as it will acknowledge those who survived and those who did not.
