Geronimo Henry is a residential school survivor. He was brought to the Mohawk Institute Residential School, also known as the "Mush Hole" 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 in order 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 as a result 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 survived and those who did not.
The goal of obtaining the funds to bring this monument to life is to ensure survivors will have the opportunity to see it completed in their lifetime.
