Sexkinx: What Happened?
Okanagan Indian Educational Resources Society & Peach City Radio
 
In January 2014, the Okanagan Indian Educational Resources Society and the Peach City Community Radio Society received a grant from the National Campus & Community Radio Association to work together in producing a documentary covering the legacy of Indian Residential Schools in Canada.

Of critical importance to the local Syilx Nation is preservation of the n'syilxcen language which, like many Indigenous languages became endangered as a result of residential school policy. Data reports from the En'owkin Centre initatives have shown that there are fewer than 200 Syilx people who are completely fluent in their indigenous language.

Thanks to the Resonating Reconciliation Project and the power of community radio, a locally produced documentary has been developed to share stores and to provide a lasting record of survivor experiences.
