“There are people who knew her back then who are embodying the promise of her,” said David Robertson, an Indigenous author whose graphic novel has brought the Helen Betty Osborne story to a new generation.
“Most everyone I’ve met who was friends with her back then are in the education system. I just can’t help but think that they are in that field because of her,” Robertson said.
“The newer one, I paid closer attention to the night she was murdered.
And I wanted to juxtapose her night with the night that the boys who murdered her were having, to juxtapose that violence and ignorance and disregard for humanity with her night,” he said.
Helen Betty Osborne moved to The Pas because she dreamed of being a teacher.
