New macabre find in Canada: Hundreds of indigenous graves discovered at another school

A team native by Canada announced yesterday Discovery of hundreds of unmarked tombs at the site of a former indigenous school, he reports Reuters. Just a few weeks after the discovery of other child remains in a school in the country, the Federation of Sovereign Indigenous Nations stated that the number of new tombs (not exactly determined) is “The most important (discovered) to date in Canada.”

The team said in a press conference today that “the horrific and shocking discovery of hundreds of unmarked graves at the site of the former school in Saskatchewan (Saskatchewan)». The discovery a few weeks ago of 215 child bodies at another Indigenous school in Kamloops, British Columbia, forced Canadians to face the legacy of an abusive and assimilated system. Between 1831 and 1996, Canada’s school system forcibly separated some 150,000 Indigenous children from their families.

They were physically and sexually abused in what the country’s Truth and Reconciliation Commission called a “cultural genocide” in 2015. Survivors who spoke to Reuters recalled the “Perpetual hunger and haunted loneliness”, in schools where there were threats and frequent use of force. The federal government of Canada apologized for this system in 2008. The Roman Catholic Church, which ran most of the schools, did not even apologize.
