First Nations Communities Demanding Action to Access Former Residential School Sights

Opaskwayak Cree Nation, The Cross Lake Band of Indians, and Norway House Cree Nation are demanding assistance from the federal government to help find children lost to the residential school system and to support first nation’s communities in mourning.

 

All three communities had residential schools and the recent news of 215 children buried at the Kamloops residential school has been difficult for members.

 

The communities are already showing their support for these children by placing shoes at residential school sites and having other ceremonies.
