Vera Manuel devoted her life to encouraging others to free ourselves through the use of our personal voices. Telling the truth is disarming, speaking your truth is a generous and healing gift.

ʔaq̓am + archival work

I had the opportunity to visit Emalene Manuel, 
in ʔaq̓am and Cranbrook. 
to create a portable archive of Vera Manuel's work.
Our hope is that a new book of Vera's plays and poetry will soon be available, 
ʔaq̓am incl. St Eugene's Church
St Eugene's-- mission, residential school, now Casino & Golf Course
