Whether or not they were sexually/physically abused, EVERY child that went to Residential Schools in #Canada was robbed of culture & family
Focusing on individual acts of abuse obscures the real purpose of the schools: #GENOCIDE thru forced assimilation.
Also - this is why it is NOT cool to refer to #Indigenous Peoples as Canadians, or beseech us to 'just be like the rest of Canadians'.
You literally call for our genocide when you do that.
Stop it.
And because #Canada persists in attempts to erase #IndigenousPeoples to get at the resources, CHILD & FAMILY SERVICES is the new #ResidentialSchools. Now, more of our children are 'in care' then were ever in those schools.
The #Genocide continues.
