I'm looking for (researching for a screenplay) the results of the boarding school experience on future generations. That is, I have the granddaughter of Indians that kept their culture and the grandson of a man who went through the boarding school experience. As she says to her friend, "I don’t know! But I know now that his grandparents had their traditions wrung out of them, while mine passed theirs on to me. And now he’s the struggling alcoholic and I’m the college graduate." And "I just want to know if this is a pattern among our people." I am looking for Indigenous people to co write it with me or to take it over from me. Carolfrances
