Suspicious graves at Canadian Aboriginal schools, quick answers search


TK’EMLÚPS TE SECWÉPEMC, British Columbia – A year after evidence of a grave was found in an orchard next to a boarding school for Indigenous children, Canada still grapples with its legacy of forced assimilation, and Indigenous families continue to seek answers. .

In May 2021, the detection of a grave suspected by ground-penetrating radar in this Indigenous community in western Canada sparked outrage and sorrow across Canada. It also renewed efforts to search the site of other boarding schools. In the past year alone, indigenous communities have provided information on more than 1,000 unmarked graves on or near school grounds.
