Storyboard Text

  • Residential Schools
  • HA! HA! HA!
  • Children were beaten for speaking their Native language and embarassed in front in front of classmates
  • I already told you child,  we only speak English here! The speaking of any other language will result in punishments! 
  • I don't understand what is happening.
  • Why are you picking it like that?! Don't you know we have to sell these? Faster! Faster
  • Children spent a large amount of time working to make money for the school as opposed to learning, none of the money was used for them.
  • When are we going to learn anything here?
  • They say we have to pray for our souls
  • They were told that their customs were of the devil and they would only be forgiven if they prayed for their souls.
  • I don't know what I did wrong but I'm supposed to pray for forgiveness
  • Along with the physical and emotional abuse was an abundance of sexual abuse in residential schools.
  • Please not again
  • On Junw 11, 2008, Stephen Harper issued a long overdue apology to the Aboriginal community.
  • On behalf of the Government of Canada and all Canadians, I stand before you... to apologize to Aboriginal peoples for Canada's role in the Indian Residential Schools system.
