The Secret Path is an album that began as 10 poems written by Gord Downie from the Tragically Hip, after learning about the death of Chanie Wenjack, who died on October 22, 1966, while trying to get home after fleeing from Cecilia Jeffrey Indian Residential School. The poems later became the basis of an album which was illustrated by Jeff Lemire. You can find out more about the Secret Path here.

The Downie Wenjack Legacy Schools Project is a program that provides "opportunity for classrooms/schools to lead the movement in awareness of the history and impact of the Residential School System on Indigenous Peoples". Schools/classes participating in the Downie Wenjack Legacy Project are encouraged to create a ReconcilliACTIONs which is representative of their school and community.
