Guy Hill Ground Search

During last summer's ground search at the Guy Hill residential school site, ground penetrating radar found 241 anomalies.


Starting today and running tomorrow and Thursday, OCN will host a ground search information gathering.


At the gathering, all information involving the ground search and some of the work that has been done in preparation to search other areas will be shared and discussed.


Dr. Emily Holland, a forensic anthropologist from the University of Brandon, will lead a team through the excavation process along with the RCMP and the government of Manitoba's research branch on the first day.


Together, the team will discuss various aspects of the search.


On the event's second day, a team from the National Center for Truth and Reconciliation will help with the processes.

On the third day, Gordon Ratt, an elder, will speak about the cultural ceremonies component of the search.


During the event, Guy Hill Residential School survivors will be attending and sharing their insights on the search, and the event is open to the public.


The gathering is in the Bignell room in the Kikiwak today and tomorrow from 9 am to 4 pm and on Thursday from 9 am to noon.
