Students have been engaged in the Project of Heart….the purpose of the project is to learn the truth about Indian Residential Schools in Canada. The knowledge gained is intended to help the healing process for survivors and their families.
This week we talked about our own “culture” and what it would mean to lose it (or be denied the right to practice it). We watched the Prime Minister’s 2008 apology to Aboriginal people Harper Talks
Students were asked to identify at least 5 things that Mr. Harper said sorry for…write about the long term affect Residential Schools had on First nations families, and lastly, how did the apology make you feel?
