About Mohawk Institute Residential School Virtual Tour

This virtual tour video was created with the production company Thru the Reddoor, and it follows guide Lorrie Gallant as she gives a tour of the former Mohawk Institute Indian Residential School. During the video, Lorrie provides the history of the institution over its 140-year history. Viewers will get to see the different rooms in the school, from the girls’ and boys’ dormitories, the cafeteria, laundry room, and other rooms throughout the building, as well as hear interviews from five Survivors of the Mohawk Institute.

*Trigger Warning: residential schools, child abuse, racism, intergenerational trauma
