  • The boys were taught carpentry, tinsmithing, and farming. While the girls were primed for domestic service and taught to do laundry, sew, cook, and clean
  • Students were strictly forbidden to speak their languages—even though many children knew no other—or to practise Aboriginal customs or traditions. Violations of these rules were severelypunished.
  • Abuse at the schools was widespread: emotional and psychological abuse was constant, physical abuse was meted out as punishment, and sexual abuse was also common.
  • Some students were shackled to their beds; some had needles shoved in their tongues for speaking their native languages.
