Summary, etc.:
"Between 1879 and 1986, at least 150,000 aboriginal children in Canada were forcibly removed and placed into Indian Residential Schools. The assault on Aboriginal identity began the moment children took their first step across the school's threshold. The telling of Canada's history is not complete without this story. Some refer to it as a "cultural genocide." Generations upon generations of aboriginal people have been affected by the abuse and horrors experienced in these schools. The Truth and Reconciliation Summary that was undertaken as an element of the Indian Residential Schools Settlement Agreement outlines 94 recommendations for achieving a full reconciliation between Canada's native and non-native peoples." --container.
