Cicero August: "All my sons carve they all build canoes, my second oldest carves full time after he hurt his back at work. My youngest son is a silversmith who is carving silver and gold full-time. My grandchildren are starting to carve now. They pick up alot of the Salish tradition at school now, they mix their designs up. My grandchildren come to me and get stories from me and go from there. It works out ok, people who have the stories tell the stories, alot of the people who are my age group lost the stories through boarding school, or forgot them." " Int: What was boarding school like? "It was terrible. I certainly would want anyone to go through what we went through. You look at a lot of our the people today they are still hurting there are very far and few between healing programs to heal the hurt and damage that went on. It took me three years of one on one counseling to get just to talk about it to get over the hurt and get on with life to get on with this.(carving). If I didn't get counselling I wouldn't be doing this, I would be hiding behind the bottle. A lot of our people are still and it hurts to see it and they don't realise it and they pass it down to their children. What do you do? You can talk about it but no one listens anymore. I'm hoping that our tribe gets some money together for a healing program. I would like to get involved with that since I was a victim and a survivor of the boarding schools. Talking to a few people I asked them what I should do to counsel and they said I had it already, first hand experience, no school can teach you what you already have. So, I would like to counsel and talk about the hurt, and that's the problem a lot of our people won't talk about it, they are in denial and that's why they are hiding behind a bottle. They get hurt pick up a bottle and drowned it." Int: Who is to blame? "It's the government that did it, the churchs were the instrument they were paid to do what the government wanted them to do. The boarding schools were designed for assimilation, beacuse of our lands, once we assimilated we would all be equal and the land could go up for sale. But that didn't happen we still here. It's a long struggle it's hard to get over the hurt, as I said if I didn't take that one on one counselling for three years I probably wouldn't be here. I've seen people go up the wrong path and they didn't stop until they left us. That's hard to see, there are only a few of us left from my times in boarding school because of the bottle. My first encounter with the RCMP was when they apprehended me because I was running away because I didn't want to go to school and it was our family doctor the late Dr. Goodbrand had the RCMP with him and they caught me I was having breakfast at the time, it was six o:clock in the morning, they took me and the RCMP cuffed me, I had no shirt or shoes on and put me in the cruiser and took me to Chemainus. Handcuffed! I was treated like a criminal from the start. I had just turned twelve. I just had learned english I had very little english. I've had bad feeling towards the police ever since. Different incidents with the police that is terrible and is ongoing today. It's hard to take as I said if I didn't take that counselling I wouldn't be able to talk about it today, or try to help others who listen."
