Living the Apology: The Regina Indian Industrial School
Presenter: Dawn Rolke
The Regina Indian Industrial School operated on the outskirts of Regina from 1891 until 1910. Run and staffed by the Presbyterian church on behalf of the federal government, the school circulated a newspaper to over 500 families and was lauded for its progress. Once a proud part of our settler story, the school was eventually forgotten; so too was the small cemetery lying adjacent to it. Now, citizens of Regina and members of the United and Presbyterian churches seek to have this cemetery remembered and restored.
