Residential Schools Truth and Reconciliation Commission

May 27, 2013 - 12:30 PM-14:00 PM (Eastern)

This video conference will give students as well as teachers a better perspective on residential schools in Canada. We will be exploring the causes/reasons for the creation of residential schools, while also looking at the effects the schools have had on the lives of First Nations people today, examining the methods of healing and coping used amongst First Nations people as a result of the schools. The international connections that the residential schools have created over the years due to the experiences and struggles that the First Nations people went through due to being forced into such institutions will also be discussed. The video conference aims to raise an awareness of the history of residential schools and inform individuals on a global scale about the experiences of those who were forced to enroll.
