“Indian Residential School” (Mush Hole) Survivor Cuts the Queen’s Grass

I can’t help but wonder how badly this might get under the skin of Kevin Annett who recently published the testimony of Geronimo Henry as part of his special report on the dig at Brantford. I’d recently talked with Bill Squire, who apologised for the interruption to our phone conversation when he said, “sorry, but there’s some people here to fix the ride-em mower so I have to go pretty soon”. Our conversation mainly focused on what was left undone and unsaid by Kevin Annett after leaving the Mush-Hole back in the fall of 2011. What hurt Bill and other tribal members the most was that he had broken his word not to disrespect the human remains in any way. There still remains hope that healing and forgiveness can be achieved for survivors like Mr. Henry and even for Kevin Annett who has but to pick up the phone to say he’s sorry. I hope that can happen… but I’m not holding my breath.
