I’m well familiar with all of this. My own father narrowly avoided being taken to a residential school here in Canada. In my work as a community support worker I worked closely with mentally disabled elders who were institutionalized because government authorities felt their parents were unfit.

Because victory gardens by their very name and nature represent the face of colonization. The many responses that say they were created to somehow defeat that are dismissing the fact that the original colonization of America was not against the current “Americans” by the English, but against Native Americans by everyone else who came here at that time. Colonization isn’t just about boarding school but the whole process that happened and is still happening. There wasn’t a “victory” for native people in that. There were hundreds of years of suffering and genocide which is still happening today and whose effects can still be seen through generations.
