Written by a Mohawk Institute Residential School survivor, this is a fierce and candid story that reveals the heartbreaking trauma of that tragic time in our history. The author portrays how the ongoing impact of the residential schools confinements has affected Indigenous communities over several generations and has contributed to many social problems that continue to exist today. By exploring that devastating history, the author finds and celebrates the resilient and hopeful spirit that many residential school survivors, like herself, have managed to retain in the face of horror and torment.

Marie Hess is a Mohawk writer from the Six Nations territory in Ontario. She is a Mohawk Institute Residential School survivor and passionate about sharing her story with the younger generation. Going Back Home is her first published book.
