About Lynda Dobbin-Turner
After being born on Vancouver Island, and leaving a part of her heart there to return to regularly, Lynda was raised on a farm in south-central Manitoba. Much of the rest of her life was spent farming not far from where she'd grown up, and many of her songs and stories are a result of that foundation. Lynda writes about the life experiences that fuel some of her passions for inclusion, diversity, and belonging as well as the work she has done for over a decade in the world of life coaching and leadership. Having lived a life full of rich experiences and deep losses, her writing shares some of what she's learned on the journey. It is always with the hope that her learning will support another's journey to be just a wee bit smoother. Lynda is also a singer-songwriter, with 3+ CDs to her credit. Her music is all available on Itunes as well as CD Baby. Lynda lives and writes from Kenora, Ontario

Devised by the government, to ‘kill the Indian in the child’, these schools were often miles, and miles from where they child’s family resided. The Truth and Reconciliation Commission has uncovered and documented many of the atrocities that took place in those institutions. It has exposed the intergenerational trauma that is the system’s legacy.
