Terese Marie Mailhot


To continue with the theme of trauma and barriers in education, I would like us to read Terese Marie Mailhot. These short essays are from her best-selling memoir Heart Berries. Mailhot is First Nations (Indigenous) and from the Seabird Island Band in British Columbia.

The two essays you will be reading bookend Mailhot’s memoir and are entitled the same: “Indian Condition”. I have labeled them with their chapter titles to keep them separate.
