The Healing Forest is a living memorial to Indigenous children lost to or affected by the residential school system. It will be placed within St. John’s Park in the North End of Winnipeg. The Healing Forest is more than a memorial. This land will be a gathering place for families, communities and schoolchildren and a place for learning and healing. It is a place for remembering the past and envisioning the future.
