People all over the world are still absorbing the news that remains of more than 200 children were found buried on the grounds of a British Columbia residential school. The revelation comes from a preliminary report by the Tk’emlúps te Secwépemc First Nation that said it hired a specialist to locate remains using ground-scanning radar. By all accounts, the deaths of the children were not documented by the school or anyone else. It’s a shocking disclosure on top of all the atrocities against Indigenous people in boarding schools that are already documented in Canada and the United States. The news prompts numerous questions, not least of which is who should be held accountable and how many other boarding schools hold similar secrets?
