For years, survivors of the Indian residential schools (IRS) shared what they witnessed.

How they saw their classmates/families buried within the fields of these government and church-run schools, and no one listened. For years Indigenous people within Turtle Island have spoken about this; it is time Indigenous people were heard.

The announcement with the finding of more childrens' bodies in unmarked graves at these IRS is devastating. In the last few weeks, over 1,300 children's bodies were found at only a few sites.

During this time, we need to allow people time and space to grieve. Our thoughts are with all. This can be a turning point for Canadians, and we can be a part of a better future.

The Indian Residential School Survivors Society toll-free number 1 (800) 721-0066 or 24hr crisis line 1 (866) 925-4419, if you require further emotional support or assistance.
