CANADA-INDIGENOUS-SCHOOL-CHURCH-R

A makeshift memorial in outside the former Kamloops Indian Residential School to honor the 215 children whose remains were found near the facility, in Kamloops, Canada, on September 1, 2021. - Kamloops has become one of the symbols of the residential school scandal that has rocked the country. Nearly six months later, the community is still licking its wounds, continuing the search and fighting to identify the missing. For the first time since announcing the recovery of 215 children's remains buried at the site of a former Catholic residential school, the community of Tk'emlups te Secwépemc will welcome Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on October 18, 2021. The location of these human remains was a nerve-wracking confirmation for the many indigenous communities, who have testified for years about the thousands of children who disappeared during their stay in boarding schools.
