Abstract:

"Growing up in a remote Northern community, Nick Sibbeston was torn away from his family and placed in residential school at the age of five, but discovered a love of learning that would compel him to complete a law degree and pursue a career in politics. Sibbeston played an instrumental role during a critical moment in Northwest Territories politics, first as an MLA, then as a cabinet minister and eventually premier of the Northwest Territories. Finally, he was appointed to the Senate of Canada. His years at residential school left a mark on his mental health, fuelling continual battles with anxiety, depression and addiction. It was only in later life that healing began to take place, as he battled his demons openly, supported not just by the medical community but also by his strong faith and the love of his wife and family."--
