This powerful anti-oxidant is commonly derived from red grapes but can also be found in nuts and berries. Anti-oxidants provide the skin with protection against free-radicals, or molecules that suck the life from cells. If cells are protected the ageing process is slowed and combined with other ingredients can reverse the signs of aging.
Vine Vera Skincare is among one of the many brands that rely on Resveratrol for results. An anti-aging serum that increases the skin overall appearance. The only ingredients mentioned are resveratrol, vitamin a, and vitamin c.
Vine Vera has continuously appeared in the media as an effective product but a few things seem fishy:. Milwaukee, Wisconsin shopping mall. Two Vine Vera kiosks are located on one floor. While many of us know this claim is impossible, even by going under the knife, it works. Once reeled into the kiosk, an associate began to pitch a sale.
After a relaxing Vivo Per Lei consultation she showed interest in 10 products. And there are NO refunds with this company! What you pay for a product depends on where you buy them from and this is where Vine Vera cheats their customers. Read the full story here. If you happen to be interested in a Vine Vera or Vivo Per Lei products, avoid kiosks and shop with online retailers like Amazon or The Cosmetics Store and save a small fortune!
Because it is a way to scam customers, I brought products from the mission valley kios in san diego. I brought and returned products but they refused to return my money , even tho they had no sign displaying that there was a no refund policy. It is against California code to not give the customer there money back. I had the same experience. They do not tell u the products are non-refundable and when I tried to return they would not even exchange because I tried the product.
I am disappointed n myself for allowing them to dupe me. They work in pairs and are high pressure. Shame because I noticed a difference with their products. I feel like walking up to people that are at their kiosks and telling them to go on amazon. I was sucked in the Seattle Remodeling Show, they sold the same lies and song and dance after the test on my eyes lifted the puffiness.
When I got home, most of the boxes were empty of any product. I have filed a theft charge on my debit card. This makes me sick! I want to follow-up and send formal letter of complaint to the Re-modeling owners and to our State of Consumer Division to work to make sure they are out of any malls in Washington State.
This needs to stop!!! Wish I had seen this before I got ucked in to purchasing this product. But I was in Vegas for a few days and the kiock in the Ceasars forum got me.
Normally I would not even stop, but I am suffering from Bell;s palsy at this time, and my face is swollen and paralyzed on the one side. So I thought I would let her work her magic on me. And believe it or not my facial swelling was reduced and even my friends commented on the difference. So I bought the eye care stuff at an outrageous price. But have used it since then with no results at all.
I think what they did in their demo was slip in a little dab of some sort of faial mask to cause the skin to tighten. Because after it dried, it felt like a facial mask in that area and there was a white residue on my skin.
Oz was promoting it, I would never have even stopped because he is not to be trusted, and is no better than a Sheister in my opinion. I got sucked in last night!!! I usually walk rt by but the idea of my pores and wrinkles going away for it!!!! UGH I wish I read this! I hope others find this information out before they buy!!!
I got sucked in as well. There was instant puffiness reduction and my friend that was with me was amazed as I was. However, when I applied the product before going to bed that evening which are the instructions , in the morning my eyes were still puffy.
When I tried it in the morning before I put on my eye make up, it did not do the trick either. I am wondering what they actually used when they demonstrated on me. Just was at the mall outside a hair and beauty salons waiting for husband to arrive.
A young girl with a Russian accent outside the store giving out free skin care samples offered me a satche of face cream. Wanted to know what i used for my eyes.. I should never had said it.. Asking me about what am I using on my face eyes ect…well I used to be in the beauty industry so I understood what she was getting at.. She did use a bit on my crows feet and upper brow.. I did feel a tightening a short while over and I was impressed…But I wanted to know how it would be a few hours later..
She tried to make me feel guilty not caring enough for my skin.. I go a brochure out of her and here I am.. It may fill as if its working when applied but it disapates and the price especially at the mall kiosk its totally ridiculous ,in the 20 to 25 mins I spent there they started at It may have been worth the These people are con artist it amazes me the better business allows them to stay in operation! Further more that the mall even allows them to be there as well!
I was approached today by a couple in a mall in Vegas. Hi, I am from the Netherlands, and a very carefull person according buying things at a kiosk. Same happend to me in that Las Vegas kiosk. She also put some on my skin around my eye, and it really looked amazing. Back in our hotel room, I unpacked the boxes, and I was shocked. Nothing looked the same. I felt soooo stupid, not checking from what she had put in the paper back. For the first time in my life I got sucked in by a total scam.
I called the representative when I got home because, it was a bait and switch… I let them know I am a frequent guest at that hotel and I would be back in July…if they did not ship the product they demonstrated, I would stand in the lobby and let everyone one know to beware. I also let them know I would dispute the transaction on my credit card for the bait and switch…they not only are shipping the right product they demonstrated… But also a complimentary gift…I will repost when I receive the right product….
I spent way too much and this is so unlike me to get suckered in by sweet talking sales pitches. I had no clue the products are on amazon until I just Googled the company. I have filed a dispute with my credit card company to see if they can obtain my signed receipt.
I am so mad at myself:. Smooth talking flirty little fellow. I royally pissed him off when I declined any and all sales pitches. He was so shady, when I walked out, I checked my purse to make sure my credit card and cell phone were still there. When I closed my eyes for him to apply the magic serum, it would have been an excellent opportunity to steal something out of my bag.
Omg I got sucked in by the same Israeli guy. He definitely mixed the serum syringe in with a dab of what looked like clear primer. He was cute though. I had the same experience with what I imagine was the same Israeli guy in Las Vegas. I was hugely jet-lagged and wondering around waiting for my friends to fly in so that I could get access to our rooms.
He obviously picked up on the fact that I was pretty out of it and he tried to reel me in with the free sample. When he offered me a facial, I like many of you guys thought that this might be a nice way to spend a little time.
It was at this point that he became aggressive. I suppose it was lucky for me that shortly after his announcement regarding the deal of the century, my skin began reacting to the products.
It made it a lot easier for me to walk away. This company is predatory and they try and take advantage of vulnerable people. The scam is real. I did not trust them the moment I saw them. They made up this lie about Dr.
My husband One day we were at the mall and were pulled over to the Vine Vera kiosk. After insincere complements about my 61 skin he recommended several products that could help. They were very polite and recommended several. Still that is a lot of money, but two years… My husband wanted to do it because of my hard cancer surgery and me losing 60 pounds.
After several months the product tan out. I called customer service and they said they had no control over the vendor but she would give him a call. Almost a week later I get a called from her and that vendor is no longer with the company. I asked if she would call him as he must have some left over product…. That is what I call customer service. Thank you Vibe Vera fir ripping me off! I was recently schnookered by this company in Toronto. As we walked by, a girl handed me a sample, then invited me into the store, where she did a couple of product demonstrations with the Merlot line.
She talked fast, moved fast, filled pauses by singing and before I had much time to think, I was buying four products. The skin care industry is one to be cautious of in general. The peeling product is a gimmick. The ingredients in this product interact in such a way to create the pilling effect when rubbed on a surface. I imagine the rubbing action generates heat which causes the effect. I was approached in the Milwaukee WI mall.
I got suckered into the facial peel, I loved it so I thought, until I read the real reason for the pilling. I got the 2 for one on the Vino Vera products, the Day and night cream. I really liked the Day cream, the night cream not so much. I should have emptied my old one. Then I was in Vegas in the Venetian mall, saw the product and got pulled in with a free sample. I told the guy I used the product and bought it in Milwaukee.
He gave me his email to gorward the receipt and of course never heard anything. This is quite a scam I feel foolish, I got dickered into about worth. Never again will I take the free sample. She was very pushy as well. I told her I would like to look up reviews and she balked and said she sells this everyday and she knows all there is to know about it.
I pull up Amazon and start reading reviews. We are currently in a lawsuit with them. Are you wasting my time?
She asked me to leave her kiosk, and I did after making sure to loudly exclaim what a fraud she and her company was. I too got pulled into their net, but absolutely adore the products.
They are like a miracle. They are nothing short of amazing. I love love love them! I totally love this line too! My undereyes got worse, instead of better with the eye serum.. I live in Florida. I absolutely love the eye serum. I believe in it. And break down the price over 2 years. And the best part is the moisturizer is the one everyday to start off. The serum and scrub is weekly or biweekly. I also find it great to apply the eye serum for a special day or night.
I just can not say enough fabulous remarks about this product. I got duped in Malta after doing a facial with a few glasses of wine thrown in. Hi Lynn, my name is Dee. I got suck into their web Nov 15, at West Edmonton Mall. I was very sick and worn out making my trip out too purchase things all at once.
As I was making my way home this female came out of nowhere saying to me, come come sit sit,. I thought maybe she seen my pain, oh and did she.
She said, 0omg ur hands and ran and got their Shea butter cream and rubbed it in and ya it did work but when I washed my hands it also was gone. When I got home and unpacked. I only had t night cream and 1 shea butter and it was used. No one seems to want to fight for there money. Report them to your local Better Business Bureau. The BBB will contact them. Also, in the past I have used this: This should do the trick, it worked for me in the past with Tracphone ugh. The Attorney General of the U.
If you pay with a credit card they will reverse the charge. First the credit card company wants you to make a good faith effort to contact the company and ask them to fix the problem.
I always conduct ALL business of this type by email so I have a written record. Who wants to get involved in a lawsuit. I will say that I used the pen thing at home and did notice an improvement in the wrinkles under my eyes and a softening of the lines from my nose to my lips. Would I use this again? Would I pay full price? Amazon here I come! Was the sales woman a made-up blonde? I too was walking by the kiosk, tired and spacey and went over when she began her pitch.
I rarely engage with these kiosk people as I know they are hard sell. She put the under eye serum on one eye and fanned my face to hasten the drying. It looked good but felt too tight and pulled. High pressure tactics, false claims about Dr. Oz and how long the effect lasts and stupid advice to wear it overnight. I was stopped at a casino in Vegas. This woman sucked me right in.
I purchased several Vina Vera products before Christmas in at the mall at a Kiosk. I was told the product would last 2 years and this was a face lift in a jar. I believe I was involved in a bait and switch, when he used the products I could see a difference.
I asked if there was a money back guarantee. He gave me his email and cell phone number. When I contacted him, he said the product will last 2 years depending on how you use it. I used the products as directed. I aid at this point it really does not matter whether it last 2 years or not, it does not work for me. He also said I did not give you a money back guarantee.
I called corporate and the same info as above, they are vendors. So, I gave the sales man one last chance to make good on his promise. They said they gave me a partial refund, which they did not. These people need to be put out of business!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Hi Cindy , Im Dee. I think either or they would directl u to t right one. If we all banned together and report this deceptive type of business and put them out of commission then others.
And once they crumble more ppl will c strength in numbers. These scammers also target seniors and t disabled, shamfull but only to us. Once it unravels everyone will ban together!!! What is my first step in making sure these con men are shut down for good? What state are you located in? I live in California and I made the grossly uninformed purchase of their products false. Please advise at your convenience. I too was taken by this company. What state do you reside? Code to not offer a refund.
I was told you had to commit to a years worth of products. The Facelift filler product did help under the eyes, however another product, the skin peel stuck to the side of my cheeks and would NOT wash off.
First I tried warm water, then a mild face cleaner, then a mild astringent but no results at all. How long did it take for the rash to heal??? I just got scammed in to this. I live in California, if the Cali codes is to actually get a refund, how can I go back ask them to get my refund? Will they actually give it back to me? Or should I said can they? I had the same issue of the Peel balling up! When the salesman reeled me in for the 3 Vine Vera Resveratrol products: I purchased because they worked so beautifully in the demo, unfortunately, not so well at home.
I just purchased the products last night as well and OMG….. Completely miserable and I just want it to STOP, I now this is a year after your post, but please let me know how long this lasted for you and were there any other side effects. As a customer And a user of vine Vera cosmetics I have to disagree with many of the comments here.
For me, this treatment save my life. I suffered for a long time from spots on my skin, dry skin and wrinkled skin but when I found out about the reservatrol treatment it change my skin tone and balance my skin less than 3 months. The spots almost gone and my skin was less wrinkles. Its investment for skin. Stop be cheap on your skin and treat it right. The products last for a long time so you save a lot of money for the long run. I sell some vine vera products in my store…I have never heard one bad word from people who actually use the product by choice, not from impulsive buying from a fast pitch.
Yes the product can be pricey but you get what you pay for and actually can be found for reasonable pricing online or some stores such as mine. The ingredients of the product are the most important factor…I have all the ingredients for my skin care products….. Indeed you sound like someone selling these products.
Some comments have nothing to do with spending a reasonable amount on a good product. I do like one of the products. But I was also on the receiving end of a bait and switch. I will look elsewhere for a similar product. There are honest people out there selling good products. If they are a quality company, they will be around after you have had the chance to vet them. You sound like the a-hole that tried to sucker me out of dollars for a tub of moisturizer and GLUE.
You are more than likely a plant or a company shill. The sheer number of disappointed and disgruntled customers shows what a scam these products are.
Mad at myself for falling for it, blame it on the Florida wine! I too got drawn in to a kiosk in a Milwaukee mall.
I have only used the masks and serum once at home but use the face creams daily. We will see what I look like in 3 months. Prices in the mall are negotiable. However I do believe the daily creams and peel will not last two yeaars but the vendor guaranteed one free refill of the peel and creams.
I was told they were going into Nordstroms. Wonder if this is tdue. Glad to see products available on line. Same story Las Vegas as many mentioned here. They alert the seller to your email. The pink slip for shipments reads; you can not cancel if products have shipped and you can only cancel by email. I can not understand how they get away with this deceitful practice. I purchased some of the products at a kiosk in the mall as well. A week later I went back with eyes swollen underneath.
He sweet talked me again and said give it a chance. Fingers crossed for positive results. My facial is next week…….
I was sceptical of course Shiraz line has a non surgical syringe, instant tightening and lifetime as long as diminishing dark circles. I bought both creams for Got pulled into the store at the Paris Hotel in Las Vegas. He put cream under my eye over my makeup…what!!
While it did tighten the area and diminish a few wrinkles it felt awful. I told him I wanted to check how it was hours later and also check online for reviews. Well after that he got nasty.
No I could do that, became very aggressive and not letting me leave or say no. Told me I had to respect him and listen to his pitch. After this went to my room to take it off. It had turned into a white crusty film. I Ran a way from the milwaukee kiosk last year but every since then ive been having a hard time with my skin.
Best product I have ever purchased for my face …!! Highly recommended , been I there store at the festival market in pompano beach and walked into there store wondering what they have , recived great service from there skincare specialist Benjamin and loved it , defenetly recon and on there cabarnet collection..!
I agree I was at offprice at the Venetian today and some fake Israeli named isaac almost scammed me too. By the time I reached for my credit card pretended to call then told him that I had already spent too much money and woyld have to go to the atm, he got aggresive even tried to grab my card and swipe it himself.
Then he started slamming things around went down to and said to me what else do you want at this price all of this and my chair too as he picked it up and slammed it against the desk. That was it for me I got up and told him to have a nice day!! I was almost fooled also. I totally agree these people need to be stopped!! Everyone on this site that was scammed needs to report them to the bbb and the attone generals office. I really hope you all get your money back this is so sad.
I was aggressively approached at a kiosk at the Natick Collection Mall in Natick Massachusetts last month. I have never been duped into buying anything from mall kiosks in the past— I am aware of the: However ir was my first time out shopping after recovering from major surgery, and was on my way home, exhausted, and an easy target.. Benjamin was a fast talker and spoke a lot of nonsense about these products. If I was going to spend that kind of money, it would not be at a kiosk at a mall.
I told him I was very tired and had to get home. He actually blocked me from leaving and was so persuasive I actually allowed him to try the Shiraz Syringe on me, it seemed to work but I knew it was likely temporary. I laughed and said what BS. Next thing Irina arrives with her pitch, and the promise of free facials when their new store at this mall opened soon. I tried not to be rude but after spending an hour of my life I will never get back I left.
They were definitely irritated I did not fall victim a second time!! I did tell Benjamin I did not expect the products to last 2 years, and that I thought that in fact any skin care products and make up should be discarded after one year!!
The products seem to be OK but doubt they will prove to be any better than most others out there. I hope you sleep well at night. Hello, same exact thing happened to me yesterday at the Natick mall and I am so upset with myself.
Same pitch about the Kardashians and Jennifer Lopez. Two or three reviews before yours, a woman named Irena left a review, stating that she did a recon at a kiosk and the skincare specialist named Benjamin had given her great customer service. I am currently in Las Vegas and after a couple of days of being here my husband and myself were walking around the Venitian when I got offered a free sample of the Merlot day cream from the company Vine Vera.
As I took the sample from the assistant she had a good look at my face and noticed the dark circles and puffyness under my eyes, thus asking if I would like a FREE sample of their under eye cream.
I said yes and the next thing the original assistant disapeard and a consultant from the shop had me sat in a chair taking a good look at my eyes and subsiquently proceeded to use this eye cream without asking me what, If any, allergys I have.
Next to the hard sell, firstly dollars for the eye cream plus a day and night cream, my face must have said it all, she then came down to dollars, I still said no, so the two other creams disappeard and just the eye cream was dollars.
I still stuck to my guns saying no and when she realised she was getting no where she changed to different areas on my face to prove a point that the botox filled cream could be used on forehead lines and crows feet, now I turned 50 in September and when she lifted my fringe out of the way and found none of the above, she asked how long I had been having botox.
I could have taken great offence to this, but felt realy good as have no wrinkles at all and it was now her turn to have a shocked look. Needless to say I came out of the shop empty handed with the consultant looking very red faced and quite anoyed, the most comical thing was , when I came out and told my husband what id been doing, he had a good look at my eyes and pointed to the opposite one that he thought had been treated.
I have also experienced the Kiosk horror. He promised me the world even a date. He never once mentioned the no return policy becz he kept saying that I was going to love the products. The last thing I said to him was that I was probably going to return some of it. I went back the next day to return it. They made a excuses. I have been trying to get them ever since. They had them in March at the kiosk for me — I came later than they wanted I quess. They said the sale rep left for the day.
Since then — the responses I have gotten are that they were still out of stock. Finally — I went yesterday — I was told that they would swap products. I was lied to about the prices not a surprise to up the grand total I assume.
So, I was given very little compared to the original deal even though like your review states — their kiosk prices are a total joke, but, that is the prices I had to go by. I left a message for him to call me. I guess, In my eyes, I should get some more for the difference of his lie.
So, I have done okay I quess. What a horrible lesson to learn. My greatest revenge is getting to turn away a customer in their clutches. I was suckered in by the store in the Paris Hotel in Las Vegas. My story is similar to the above being offered everything under the sun including a date from a young attractive sales guy when the store was near closing. The oddest thing was as I was standing there I was trying to google the product on my phone and could not get to the internet although I had a full signal.
When I got back to my room that night I actually had to restart my phone to get it to work, it made me wonder if they have some sort of jamming app in the store to prevent people from googling. The next morning I went down to return the products but the store was not open so I went to hotel concierge who gave me an earful.
They said they wished the store was not in the hotel, that they heard many complaints. Now I was dressed in a suit and remained very calm, and let them know that the concierge told me there were several complaints against them. As I turned to walk out of the store they told me they would refund me.
I think they may have been nervous I was a reporter or official of some kind since I was in a suit and acted very professional and calm. The fact that he told me his family owned the business and they were contradicting that story, in addition to all the similar stories online about the sales associates makes me feel like it must be a scam but anyone who has any information about the syringe use and ingredients would be appreciated.
I have just left a lengthy comment below yours. My experience was not bad at all. I think these stores are individually owned and I read that is why there is no consistency in sales tactics and prices and packages. Like you, I was immediately sold on the result at the store. I have been home with my product for a few hours now and used a little more under my lower lip and the results are good. In addition the article above quotes mostly lower priced products that were obviously overcharged in the store and available on line for far less.
My search was admittedly quick regarding the higher end products I purchased but Amazon and E bay sellers were asking almost exactly what the young salesman had told me were the retail prices per item. I do think he was experienced as he said he had just flown into our Ontario mall from the West Edmonton Mall and also that he was himself from Los Angeles.

Mary Battaja, no middle name. What Residential School did you go to? Chooutla Indian Residential School, in Carcross.
What years were you there? I believe it was to Around 8 years old. Do you remember what life was like before you went there?
Can you talk a little bit about that? I was born and raised by my traditional parents, and my community people are very traditional, where we spoke the language and hunted, fished, trapped and lived 3 miles down the Spirit River, 3 miles from Mayo Town. I believe the Anglican Church brought teachers to our village for Grades 1, 2 and 3. I still remember their names: We had school in the church for the children and we really liked it.
Then for some reason the government I remember talking to my parents, and I can remember too, the Indian Agent at that time as they were called, a man came down and said to the people in the village that they had to move out of the village today. So there was a lot of mixed feelings of sadness and you could hear people crying and children crying and people packing up their personal belongings like food and blankets. You can only take what you needed because you had to carry this 3 miles, walking up the trail to town.
That was our home. My dad built the cabin and when we got to town we had no place to go. So my dad went to the trader who owned a store and made a deal with him to cut wood for him to get tents so he got 2 tents. He set them up all through the seasons, like the 4 seasons we lived in tents year-round. When we had to pay our rent to this old White man we thought he was really taking our money away from us. It was a lot of money. Life was really good for us before the Residential School.
People were close and helped each other and they lived off the land. They knew everything about the land and they were very strong people. They are survivors, you know, even through the harsh winters. They knew what they had to do to survive and live on the land. They teach their children at a very young age. In the old days the aunts were expected to teach the girls and the uncles were responsible for teaching the boys, and so they had a system, their traditional way, that really worked for them.
They practiced that until the White people came up to this country. It was really hard. So we would listen really hard and when we went home we copied them, as kids, you know. Going off to the Residential School, I remember that, too, the first day we went. Can you talk about that a little bit?
I remember my mom and my dad telling us that the government said we had to go to school and take us away from home. They got us ready to leave and I remember we left home, which was Mayo, on September 6th, we would leave, and then return June 28th. There was a little stepladder that we climbed up and we took our belongings with us in a little bag as we went along.
I remember my mom would curl our hair and dress us up. We would pick up kids along the way. Then we went on to Carcross and we would arrive there about 7 at night. As soon as we got there they assigned us to supervisors.
They assigned us our number. The first thing they did was take the children and divide us into Juniors, Intermediates and Seniors, so you were separated right away from your siblings or your older sisters and brothers. I had 2 other sisters who went to school and we had a little brother. When we got to school they separated the kids.
Then they would give you your clothing, a nightgown, and a uniform and you would go off to the showers. At that time I remember rows of sinks in the bathroom and there was kerosene oil in them and you had to put your head in there to clean your head in case children had lice, I suppose. But we knew that we came from a very clean home and it was very hard for us to do this.
What about the food? What was it like? We got breakfast, lunch and supper. It was very basic food. I remember if we got eggs it would be at Easter time and they were cooked in a big pan and just sliced in squares.
The kids had chores in the kitchen, and when we had dessert we usually had prunes, figs, or stuff like that, and you had to count 3 per child.
I remember if any were missing we would stand up for as long as it took for somebody to confess eating the fruit that was supposed to go to the children. Did you work in the kitchen? Was that one of your chores? What were some of the other chores you had to do? We were assigned to different work, like cleaning the Dormitories, Play Rooms, Washrooms, cleaning the institution, the whole building. The best place to work we thought was working in the Staff Dining Room because they got the best food, and we managed to get some of that sometimes.
That way you can go back and tell your friends that you had a good meal. Today I think to myself, children deserve all good things and we know that was stealing.
Our parents always would teach us it is wrong to steal. So we learned to do things that were not good. What about the education you received? Do you think you had a good education there?
You had no choice. Everything is timed and you have to have your assignments done. One of the things we were always so proud of was how well we did in our class because of the strict discipline.
I believe the kids got really good grades. We used to be so proud of that. But at the same time the teachers, some of the teachers were not always good to the children. That happened quite often. I always thought that was sad, how many children had to go through that. I always believe all children should be treated in a manner that they should come to love, and receive an education and everything that comes with it.
Are there any memories from the school that really stand out that you would like to share with us today? Today I speak my language very fluently. They were separated from us. I remember to this day my classmate, a boy, wrote home to his parents and he asked his parents to send him some dry fish and some dry meat because he missed his traditional food. And the teacher made fun of that.
We understand where this child was coming from. I remember my mom and dad sent me a brown plaid dress. It was size sixteen. And they showed it to me but I never wore it because I never saw it again. I suppose it got thrown out, you know. So he is our brother. So we raised him up and he went off to school with us, too. And then the supervisor finally told us that he was sick in the Infirmary. We asked to see him and then we had to ask, how many times, before the Infirmary nurse gave us permission to visit with him for a few minutes.
That was the last time we saw him because they sent him I believe to Edmonton and he died there. We never saw him again. Do you know what he died of? Before we move on and talk about life after Residential School, you have some notes with you. Would you like to look at those for a minute to see if there is something else you want to share? Just take a moment and look at your notes to see if there is something else there you would like to say. Just take your time. I just need to get rid of this stuff, I think.
Is this the first time you have shared some of these things? Just about the spiritual part. When we were in the school First Nations people were always spiritual people. In the Western way I suppose they identify that as religion.
It was never a form of religion to us. In them days as a child I can remember the Minister and the people wherever they went they had prayer times, whatever they needed to do, it was part of their daily lives.
But once we got into the school when we get up in the morning we would pray, the whole school. We would go off to our chores, then at breakfast we would pray again before breakfast, and then after breakfast, after all the meals.
Then we go off to the chapel before class and we have another prayer session. Then we go into class and before the class started we would have another prayer. After school we go to supper and before supper we have prayers again and after supper. Then at night we go to the chapel for prayers, and then in the evenings before bed time we had prayers again.
We started our day, every day was like that. I remember some kids, I guess it was too much for them, and then on Sunday we had services at least about 2 or 3 times a day. Everything you did was not by choice. So my friend and I we joined the choir.
Then we had bible studies. You had to do all these things. Like I said, our Old People and my parents are very spiritual people and prayer time is a special time. We loved to come together to pray, sing and worship. My sisters, both of them, they ran away from school, and when they came back they received harsh punishments. We looked out the window and watched them. Right after that they would just get their meal and straight to bed, for a long time.
We thought it was funny because there was this girl from my home town. She has died now, too. We used to call her the Runaway Committee because she was a funny girl. Did you ever try to run away?
I was too young and too afraid. And at the school, too, you were taken away from your community and people you know and put among strangers. A lot of the Staff I believed were from England. They were very foreign and very different. You had to look out for yourself. Most of the kids would hang out with kids from their own community. Sometimes kids would get angry and there would be fights, so you had to always be on the lookout so you feel safe.
I also went back to school and became a Social Worker. I worked in the hospital, here in Whitehorse General Hospital for many years, helping people.
I really enjoyed that. Do you find that helps you as well? Oh yes, it helps me. People have said to me that when I was very young I always liked helping people and liked being around people. I was very close to my parents and when we came back from school, like I said, we used to go home June 28th.
The truck would arrive at the school. The kids would take their personal belongings and you would curl your hair, put on your best clothes and down the road you would go again. I remember the first year when we arrived home at Mayo, the truck pulls up on the front street. When we got off the truck we went the long way around to our houses. We knew that changes had taken place, I suppose.
And then some of us, like for myself, my last year at Residential School I think in was the first time the government had allowed the public schools to open to the Natives, so we went there. We were smart children and we really wanted to get educated and get good jobs. And I never did. So how was life after Residential School?
Do you think that your experiences impacted your whole life? When I came home from the Residential School my mom died very shortly after. And then my dad found out. He was very upset. So my first job was to work in the restaurant washing dishes. So I did that for a while and then I met my husband. I got married very young. We are still married today, after forty-six years. Leo is a real wonderful man. He came up from Italy looking for a gold mine, working in the mines.
We had a family and I lived and worked with him in the mines. Have you ever talked to him about your experiences in Residential School? I always had a light on and he always tried to figure out how that is.
He was part of my healing journey, I suppose. And today he still is because today he made supper when I came home. We had roast moose meat and gravy and potatoes.
What about your children? Have you talked to them about Residential School? Like I say, after I got married I guess I was on a roller coaster.
I met this wonderful man and my life is going to be good and beautiful, so I kind of shut off all that Residential School experience stuff. Once I got into the workforce working with other people I was so busy helping other people and doing things I wanted to do, I just never really had time to deal with my own residential experience. When the Residential School issues started to come out, even in the church, because I was a First Nations person I would be the one asked to speak to that, you know.
We just nominated an Aboriginal Bishop to oversee all the Native churches across Canada. Pretty soon you kind of get dragged into it with your own stuff and start to trigger some memories and some traumas. He said that it could be.
With my children, you know, you pass on what you learn. You heard the story today Jackie told the story about the generations of women cooking chicken who would cut the legs and arms off and put them in the pot.
When you have children, you pass on the teachings of what was taught to you because you were told it was the right and good thing to do. Do you take time for yourself now? A Yeah, this is my third year off work. How does that feel? I spend a lot of time with my friends, my family, just doing things for myself. The thing I love doing the best is doing beadwork with my friends.
I have wonderful friends and support people who take are of me. My friends will come by and take me for a ride. I just sit back. With my children I was very strict with them. We should have taught the traditional way, not the government or religion way.
So I believe my children have the impact of that, too. So I had to sit down with them and talk to them. Is that something you have done? Have you talked to them? I really love my children. My husband and I are all excited about that.
So something good comes out of bad things, I believe. I try not to live in the past. I really believe that for myself my past is sort of a blueprint of my hurts and my pains to a brighter and a better future.
I use that to make the changes for a better life for myself and whoever I help. This is the first time I actually got to go to a Conference. Are you glad you came? Do you think it has been worthwhile? I know you said it was hard, but you just said a few minutes ago sometimes good things come from bad. Do you think in a few days you might find that this helped?
So that kind of information is very useful to First Nations people. Because all my life growing up I know that money has very little value to Indigenous People because people say it is because we never had anything. We had healthy food, natural food, we had the whole land. We had spring water. Now everything is contaminated. You go to the store to buy frozen foods.
We used to grow gardens and store vegetables in the cellar. My dad used to have a radio and he played it every Saturday and we would catch the Inuvik Station of jig music and we kids used to dance and entertain the Elders. We would get our treat and then go to bed.
They would carry on visiting and telling stories. I still have photographs of my father when I was a child about 6 years old.
My dad was an amateur photographer. One day when I went back to visit him in Mayo he was tearing them up and throwing them in the garbage. I got pictures of the way our people lived, how they did potlatches and ceremonies and family photos and burials. So I know the history of my people very well, and I speak my language very well, Northern Tutchone. I translate for people. We just need to do it.
We are almost out of time. Are there any final words you would like to share? When we work together in unity for something that is good, in the end we will find the good.
Thank you very, very much for coming today and having the courage. So thank you so much for coming. It seems to me this hour is the longest time of the week for me. Grant Severight; G-r-a-n-t S-e-v-e-r-i-g-h-t. And what school did you go to? Actually, it should be on the Keeseekoose First Nation. How old were you when you first went?
I was 5 years old. Do you remember what it was like your first day? Oh yes, I remember. Can you describe that? It was a day like today. I was looking forward to going. They rolled in a big old green International truck, a cattle truck. I remember it was green. I remember my grandfather helping me get on the truck, on the box, to help me climb on.
I remember standing holding on and driving along as we picked up other students. It was really exciting. I remember getting to the school.
I think what really sticks out in my mind was the smell of the disinfectant they used in the school. It was really harsh. Every time I smell that particular smell I always get that flashback of having been in that school. It was a special disinfectant. I still smell it every once in a while wherever I go.
I remember getting into a fight with another little boy who ended up being my boyhood friend for the rest of the time I was there. His name was Mike. And going to bed. I remember going to bed. It was still daylight. I found that a little unusual. What was it like in the Dorms when you went to bed?
I remember the bunk beds and how all the beds were neatly made. I remember being assigned a top bunk. And I remember the guy below me. His name was Dennis. There again, smells were probably the most distinct thing about Residential School. I remember they gave us powdered toothpaste. I remember the smell of that and the kind of hand soap they gave us. What was the food like there? That was probably the most delicious thing we had there.
Fridays we always had some kind of fish. Oh yes, at supper time the reason I remember that is we used to get canned fruit for dessert and we used to make bets. Sometimes we would lose our dessert or sometimes we would win. I knew it was good for the staff because I was one of the boys later on in life that, later on, we hauled in the truck supplies for the school. When the supply truck would come in every so often, the boys would haul in the goodies. I remember the cases of bananas and the cookies and all that nice stuff.
I found that kind of strange. Later on when I became an altar boy my reward was to get an orange. After I served Mass I would get an orange. Those who went to Confession that Sunday morning would be rewarded with an orange. Or if you went to Holy Communion you were given an orange. They had a pretty good incentive system to pray a lot. Did you learn a lot in Residential School in terms of academics?
I was one of the I remember going to a special conference with the school staff. I was supposed to make a presentation to the other school teachers but I was too nervous. I forgot what I was supposed to do and I failed dismally for them so they were kind of mad at me for that.
But I remember getting good marks. They were so long. For an hour every day we went to study. And then we had a little recreation program there which was not too bad. I never experienced anything bad until later on, when I was older. But I remember a lot of the violence was from the older students, the boys that were there. When I went there the Nuns were on their way out.
But they still had animals. I remember me and my uncle Milton. Milton was retarded and I remember we used to go ride the pigs.
The movies were the big highlight there. They had these old reel-to-reel things and you could hear them clicking. It was a big thing for us to go watch especially the Indian and Cowboy movies.
We all ended up cheering for the cowboys anyway! Them terrible Indians were driven off the land. What would you want people to know about your experience at Residential School? The experience in itself dislocated the children from the nucleus of the family warmth and the family caring. Is that what happened to you? Even though I was raised by my grandparents, I loved my grandparents. I would have stayed in the bush with them rather than being put in a Residential School.
I remember missing them and the dislocation I felt, the disconnection I felt to my family. Eventually that whole dislocation and disconnection kind of built walls in me that took me years to deconstruct again.
The feeling of inferiority I felt All over the Reserve we were happy there but when we would go outside the perimeter we would see these White farmers who were flourishing and just wealthy.
Somehow even as a young man I used to wonder why is that? We were more or less just tolerated by the merchants in town.
That had a lasting impression on me, that feeling of not being equal. I probably carried that into all of my other relationships later on. Somehow it fired within my spirit anger. I really felt unfair treatment. But at that time I really had nothing to compare that with. I just thought that was the way it was for us people. I remember eventually by the time I was about twelve years old I was already thinking about leaving the Reserve because I seen there was nothing there.
Somehow I was born with a desire to want more. I wanted to experience life to a greater degree. All I seen at that time were things I seen in the movies. I even tried running away when I was twelve years old.
I got hungry so I come home! That was the extent of my escape from the drudgery of living on an Indian Reservation during the summer holidays. Eventually I did get transferred to another Residential School. How old were you when you were transferred? I was twelve years old. I burnt down a White farm, me and my retarded uncle went. He was the local bootlegger.
I remember my grandfather giving his food voucher for wine. One day me and my uncle came upon this farm and I recognized the vehicle and nobody was home so we burnt it down. The police, the RCMP came and got me. He was older but they sent me to another Residential School. What was that school like? That school was like walking into paradise. I remember the Priest picking me up in that little town there where they had put me on a bus, and I was under the care of the bus driver.
The Principal picked me up and took me to school. I remember getting cookies and a glass of milk. I mean, it was the real milk that tasted good.
The other stuff we had was always powdered stuff.
