The McLean Day Schools Settlement Corporation (MDSSC) will support Federal Indian Day School Survivors and their families through the $200M MDSSC Legacy Fund which will help fund projects that support language & culture, healing & wellness, commemoration, and truth telling. The MDSSC Legacy Fund Outreach Process is a way for Survivors and their families to give us input directly to help guide the implementation of the Legacy Fund and ensure it is responsive to their needs.
MDSSC is engaging in its outreach process with Survivors and their families to solicit their input directly to help the MDSSC Board of Directors guide the implementation of the MDSSC Legacy Fund, and ensure it is responsive to Survivors and their families’ needs.
If you are a Federal Indian Day School Survivor, you may register for, and attend, a virtual National Outreach Session. These facilitated virtual sessions will involve guided questions intended to secure input on a variety of important issues, including how the MDSSC Legacy Fund should be administered and implemented. Each session will respect cultural and health protocols, and include Elders, mental health supports, and after-care.
MDSSC will conduct National Outreach Sessions, which will be bilingual with full interpretation available in both French and English. Please note that, due to difficulties with COVID-19 and differing protocols, we are no longer holding Regional Outreach Sessions at this time. If you were going to participate in a Regional Outreach Session, we would kindly ask you to register for one of our National Sessions instead.n,jxnverour t
