Storyboard Text

  • May the lord be with you.
  • Today we will be learning about...
  • 10 years later...
  • You have been called here today as you will all be released.
  • St. Paul's Residential School
  • Free at last!
  • Every day, it was the same routine at the school. Thomas would wake up, learn, pray, then sleep. The cycle would continue over and over again. As the days went on, Thomas lost bits and bits of his identity until it was all gone.
  • The Indians? They were moved to the reserve years ago so we could have the land. But I'm not sure where the reserve is.
  • Home! I'm going to get to see my family!
  • I'm looking for my family.
  • Who are you?
  • The Smiths
  • After 10 years of the endless cycle, the children were released from the school because of new Canadian laws. Thomas was overjoyed to be able to leave once and for all.
  • Now I have nowhere to go...
  • Once released, Thomas sprinted home and couldn't wait to see his family after 10 years of being apart.  But little did he know.....
  • Once at his old home, he was confronted by a woman who informed him that his family had been forced to move into a reserve by the Canadian government so that room could be made for new immigrants like her family. However, she didn't know where the reserve was to help him.
  • Ok... thank you.
  • After 10 years of suffering in the residential school, Thomas had the chance to see his family again but was not able to. This was not only the case for Thomas but many other First Nations in the 1800's who suffered because of residential schools and being moved to reserves by the Canadian government.
  • And he did not live happily ever after.
