Truth & Reconciliation
Presenter: Lorna Standingready
The Indian Residential Schools were of network of boarding schools for Native Canadians, funded by the Canadian government’s Indian Affairs and Northern Development, and administered by Christian churches. The goal was assimilation of First Nations children into the dominant (white) Canadian culture. It is estimated that about 30% of native children – 150,000 were placed in residential schools nationally. Roughly 3,000 of those students died in the schools – mostly from disease. The Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada was part of an overall holistic and comprehensive response to the Indian residential school legacy. It was officially established in June 2008, and completed in June, 2015.
