Residential Schools and Unmarked Graves
By Conrad Guelke
Posted on 8/6/2021 3:30 PM
In the July 29 issue of E-News from the Anglican Diocese of New Westminster, Kerry Baisley, Missioner for Indigenous Justice in the Diocese, wrote a blog which suggested that readers listen and see four documentary presentations regarding residential schools and their consequential trauma. Each of the presentations can be readily accessed online through the links provided in Kerry's blog:

Kerry's blog also includes the following quote by Indigenous author, David A. Robertson,

"Residential school history is not indigenous history. It is not Canadian history. It is not history at all when we are still healing, even as new wounds have been opened. This is Canada now.  Reconciliation is a shared responsibility and you need to figure out what your role is. Educate yourself with stories told by Indigenous people.  Share what you  have learned and use that knowledge to take action that will create lasting meaningful change."
