This week was truth and reconciliation week to remember the indigenous people in Canada and how many went to these schools that were run by churches. The students were taken away from their families and sent to these schools to forget who they are. When you get there they would take your clothes, cut your hair and make you take a shower then change into a uniform. These students would only see their family twice a year. And if they talked to the other gender they would get abused or starved many died from this and not many survived the schools started in 1883 till 1996 the last school to close was in Saskatchewan in 1996. Our school should start teaching more about indigenous traditions and culture. Reconciliation means to fix broken relationships.
