I am scribbling away at Quando Omni, although not in strict temporal sequence. A long time ago I mentioned that aspects of this story were political commentary and a response to JK Rowling's treatment of indigenous peoples in her Magic in North America/Ilvermorny essays. Having said that, this reason.com article stresses how residential schools in North America had a fundamentally different cultural context from the British model that the Potterverse nostalgically worships. Too, I'd like to direct your attention to the brilliant, haunting, and provocative new project from Gord Downie (The Tragically Hip): secretpath.ca, which was inspired by the tragic story of Chanie Wenjack.
