Cultural Narrative: 

We were all at the boarding school, the Sisters of Providence boarding school. We could not have our cultural things, but the priests could. We spoke our language in secret, because we were not allowed to speak it. Later we started to revitalize the basket making after the 1930s. Leta Campbell

We couldn't have our regalia or baskets at the boarding school, so that is why we lost so much of our culture. Sister Providencia, they liked her, she was one of the nice ones. Joyce Swan
