Sask. Indigenous couple finds reclamation climbing hill used to punish residential school kids

Jun 22, 2021

You won't find mountains in Saskatchewan, but one couple has scaled their own personal Mount Everest on the Prairies. Social Sharing Posted: Jun 21, 2021 1:59 PM CT | Last Updated: June 21 Philip and Michelle Brass (pictured with son Forrest) each set a goal of climbing the Lebret hill 200 times in one year. (Submitted by Philip and Michelle Brass) WARNING: This story contains details some readers may find distressing. You won't find mountains in Saskatchewan, but one couple has scaled a personal Mount Everest on the Prairies. Philip and Michelle Brass, who live on the Peepeekisis First Nation in Saskatchewan, each climbed to the top of the Qu'Appelle Valley a couple hundred times over the course of a year. Although it's not as well known as Everest, the couple chose a hill with a well-known history. The Lebret hill is nestled in the Qu'Appelle Valley. There's a small chapel three-quarters of the way up and the stations of the cross mark the steep pathway. On top of fitness, Philip and Michelle's quest to conquer the hill also became a way to reclaim it. The Lebret Indian Residential School was located near the hill. For generations children from the Peepeekisis, Okanese, Star Blanket and Little Black Bear First Nations were taken from their homes and sent to that school or others like it in the area. That included Philip's parents, grandparents and great-grandparents. Survivors tell of the Lebret Hill being used as punishment. Children from the Lebret school were forced to climb the steep hill, sometimes on their knees. "I know for a lot of our people, their association with the hill is not a good one. It's a place of painful memories." Philip said. "But it's important for our generation — the first that weren't stolen from our families and forced to go to that school — to reclaim the space, reclaim it as ours and begin building a new legacy." "I would climb and think about the children that would have to climb it," she said. "I would say prayers as I'd go up." Michelle said sometimes residential school survivors would reach out on Facebook to thank the couple for helping them feel better about the place. Health quest The couple's climbs up the Lebret hill provided some incredible views. (Submitted by Philip and Michelle Brass) The hill makes for a calendar-worthy picture against a deep blue Saskatchewan sky. It was an easy choice for the couple because it's accessible to the public. It was also on the route to Philip's work with the Prairie Valley School Division. It began as a quest for Philip, who was suffering from some serious back pain. "I wanted to compensate for my weak back, and weak core, so I needed to develop leg strength." He ultimately wanted to get in better shape for hunting season. Philip has been an avid hunter his entire life and now Michelle has taken it up as well. The couple are advocates for Indigenous food sovereignty and traditional Indigenous practices. "I wanted to train my body in a way to prepare me for the activity of carrying a heavy load," Philip said. Philip and Michelle Brass celebrate with their son Forrest after Philip completed his 200th trip up Lebret Hill in the Qu'appelle Valley in Saskatchewan. (Submitted by Philip and Michelle Brass) Philip started climbing the hill in August 2019 and quickly set the goal of climbing it 200 times in one year. When climbing became too easy, he started running up the 78 metres. His personal best was two minutes 58 seconds. When he wasn't running, he would carry weights up the hill to replicate the process of packing out a big animal after a successful hunt. Gradually he built up to carrying 48 kilograms in a backpack up and down the hill. That's more than half his body weight.
