Belinda Vandenbroeck is a member of the Opaskwayak Cree Nation from The Pas, Manitoba. She was born at Big Eddy Reserve at home. She lived with and was bought up by her grandparents from the time she was one month old. Belinda went to the Anglican Church residential school, Mackay School, in Dauphin, Manitoba from 1957-1967. Her parents also attended the old Mackay School at Big Eddy Reserve where they were born.
She has lived a life of sobriety for 39 years and has been traveling her healing journey for as many years. Her life’s goal and passion has always been to learn about anything and everything that has to do with healing. I continue to carry on this passion to the present.
She has a B.A. in Native Studies and Psychology and is also trained in Time Line Therapy which assists individuals to heal the past from the root cause. Her company does 5 day personal development retreats for Aboriginal women. She has been doing presentations and workshops on the effects of residential schools, health and wellness for the past 25 years.
Belinda and Jean will discuss the impact the residential schools have had on the aboriginal culture in Canada.
Host Russ Letica will discuss the painful and horrible legacy of the Residential Boarding Schools.
The Reservation Boarding School System was a war in disguise. It was a war between the United States government and the children of the First People of this land. Its intention was that of any war, elimination of the enemy. The reason this war is difficult to recognize is because it was covered by the attractive patina of a concept called "Manifest Destiny." Manifest Destiny was a philosophy by which the white european invader imagined themselves as having a divine right to take possession of all land and its fruits.
In any encounter with mainstream historical accounts, it is obvious that Native People were very little more than a "problem" to be solved by the colonizers. To white society, they were heathens and behaved like savages. They had no written language, their children were unschooled, and for the most part they didn't know how to stay in one place, many moved their villages according to the seasons. If these people, these Natives, were ever going to amount to anything in this United States of America, they had to be taught the proper and acceptable way to live. All aspects of Native culture or way of life were unacceptable to the white european mind.

LAB SAFETY IN SCHOOLS: TOO OFTEN OVERLOOKED.
Carolina Biological presents NSTA advisor on Lab safety Dr. Ken Roy, Director of Safety for Glastonbury CT Public Schools on 'Revolutionary Curriculum Changes in Science: Safety Impact"
Rapid expansion in adoptions and use of mobile devices in schools has the potential to impact almost every aspect of education. A new report, "Mobile Technology for K-12 Education," sponsored by mobile learning company, Amplify, and conducted by education market research experts at IESD, reveals details about the current status of mobile technology in our schools. The question is, what are publishers and developers who serve the school market doing in terms of their product marketing plans and their sales approaches as we move away from the a textbook centric K-12 sales environment to an environment where smartphones, tablets, and other mobile computing devices are the primary delivery envelope? Host Glen McCandless asks K-12 market researcher, Jay Sivin-Kachala, of IESD, to provide his perspective.
Bloods, Crips, Latin Kings and a host of other gangs plague our inner cities but is this the result of a society that has failed the children of this generation? When we look at the failure of the present school system that is validated by the number of failing schools especially in the inner city there is without question a "State of Emergency" in the public school system where ever you reside. Lets explore some answers to the problem and our responsibility to employ them.
