Unveiling Ceremony: The Journey of the Baby Vamp: Honouring the Lives of the Missing Children from Residential Schools
In 2021 the recovery of 215 unmarked graves at Kamloops Indian Residential School in British Columbia, followed by hundreds of others, was a turning point in Canadian history. To commemorate and honour each First Nation, Métis, and Inuit child who never returned home from Residential Schools, Social Work PhD student Deborah Young launched a communal beading project at Carleton, inviting community, faculty, staff and students to join together to create beaded baby vamps for eventual display in the School of Social Work.
This unveiling features an artwork of 356 vamps created to honour the children and families who continue to live and feel the impacts of the Residential School System.
Deborah is a Cree from Manitoba and a visitor on Algonquin unceded Traditional Territory. Her mother was taken from the Peguis First Nation when she was 9 years old and placed in the Brandon Residential School. Her father was taken from the Opaskwayak Cree Nation when he was only 5 and placed at residential school in Saskatchewan. They later met at Dauphin Indian Residential School in Manitoba. Deborah is a PhD candidate and lecturer in the School of Social Work.
