Waneek would ultimately survive her wound, and in 2015 she and her younger sister would recall the incident in an interview with CBC.
"Horn-Miller, still holding her sister, ran and made it to the media barricade. When she got there she recognized a soldier who had refused to allow her grade 10 school bus past the blockade a couple of weeks earlier. "I pointed at him and said I know you… as I pointed at him I pulled my little sister behind my back and right at that point I got hit in the chest… and I fell forward and then someone kicked my feet out from underneath me and I landed on my back and my little sister fell on top of me," she recalled. "I felt like my head was going to explode. I was so angry and scared, I was in terror, I had lost it." Someone grabbed both girls then, dragged them away and returned them to their mother. "I handed my little sister to her and I looked down. I felt like my chest hurt and I looked down and I had blood all over the front my shirt and I went ‘oh my god’. I looked in my shirt and I had a huge gash in my chest," Horn-Miller said. But instead of medical care, the Mohawks were herded onto a school bus and taken into temporary custody. It would be 22 hours before she was released and taken back to Kahnawake where she finally saw a doctor."
Her sister is actress Kaniehtiio Horn, who is in the show Letterkenny as Tannis, and the show Wayne on Amazon. That’s crazy. I wasn’t aware they were related!
Never forget that the "polite" Canucks have been and are as brutal to indigenous people as the US.
