WATCH: CANADA'S DARK SECRET

The story of Canada's residential school system and the indigenous survivors who bear witness to its abuses.

[ http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/46381.htm ]

Posted February 05, 2017 Video Documentary - By Al Jazeera - 47 min.

In 1996, the last residential school in Canada was closed down, bringing to light horrifying stories about the methods used to sever indigenous children from the influence of their families and to assimilate them into the dominant "Canadian" culture. Over more than a century, tens of thousands of families were torn apart as children were kidnapped or forcibly removed from their homes

Residential schools were part of an extensive education system set up by the Canadian government and administered by churches with the objective of indoctrinating Aboriginal children into the Euro-Canadian and Christian way of life. . . . .
