In 1922, “The Story of a National Crime” was published by Dr. P.H. Bryce. This publication not only exposed poor conditions in residential schools, but also detailed how the government was covering up information regarding the health of Indigenous students, creating what Bryce calls a “criminal disregard for treaty pledges”. So why did it take another forty years for these schools to begin shutting down? This workshop gives an overview of the residential school system and details four individual stories from the residential school era, in order to better understand residential school experiences.
Please bring your lunch and join us.
