This bracelet helps tell a story of Seven Generations.
When a child is forcefully removed from their home and sent to a Residential School, the affected Seven Generations include the parents, grandparents and great-grandparents left behind, that child's future children, great-grandchildren and great-great-grandchildren. The 7th generation affected is of course that child themselves.
The 7 red onyx (orange) centre stones represent these Seven Generations.
The 2 white jade stones represent the child's parents.
The 3 black onyx beside the two white jade stones represent the child's other family.
The other 3 black onyx represent the other children at the Residential School.

'Save the Evidence is a campaign to raise awareness and support for the restoration of the former Mohawk Institute Residential School, and to develop the building into an Interpreted Historic Site and Educational Resource. As a site of conscience, the final goal is to create a fully realized Interpretive Centre that will be the definitive destination for information about the history of Residential Schools in Canada, the experiences of Survivors of the schools, and the impact that the Residential School system has had on our communities.'
