Description
"Native Canadians are demanding the federal government act on recommendations of the Royal Commission on Aboriginal Peoples. Among the many recommendations is one that would redress a terrible injustice: residential schools. Native Canadians want to heal the wounds inflicted by those schools, but they say that can't happen until the government apologizes for its involvement and accepts responsibility. Many Native children suffered abuse, sexual and physical, and neglect in these schools. All of them lost their past, culture and traditions when they were forced to attend these white-man schools."
