The residential schools in Canada

Residential schools for indigenous peoples are a painful reminder of Canada’s recent history. Between 1883 and 1996, around 150,000 indigenous children were taken from their families and forced to live in these places, with the purpose of obliterating their identity. At the end of May, the remains of 215 children were found in an effort to uncover what happened in those years. Now, another 700 bodies have been found.

We spoke to Jo Woodman of Survival International to understand what happened and is still happening.
