Her Story

By Krista Belle Stewart

In 1967, Camera West, a CBC documentary series, produced Seraphine:

Her own story told by Seraphine Ned, which portrayed the story of BC’s

first Native public health nurse, and the artist’s mother. This project is based

on a production still from this film and is used to unpack a set of

personal and institutional histories, which testify both to specific and

general complexities of residential school history.
