The history of Canada’s residential school system through a stop motion video.






Quelle est la chose la plus intéressante ou surprenante que tu as appris en préparant ton projet et en effectuant ta recherche ?

The large amount of residential schools in Canada shocked me as well as how long they were open for. Also the implication of Sir John A. Macdonald in this tragedy was a sad discovery.

Quelles sont les informations les plus importantes à retenir de ta recherche que tu aimerais partager avec les autres Canadiens ?

I have learned about how much of a secret the residential schools for First Nation children were and how they are such an important but sombre part of Canadian history.

Peux-tu comparer ta vie aujourd'hui avec celle de celui ou ceux qui sont présentés dans ton projet ?

I feel very fortunate to not be one of the thousands of First Nation children that has suffered terrible abuse in these schools. This trauma also had a huge impact on their adult lives. I am grateful that I was brought up in a loving family and community.
