It's been a while since I talked about this issue, so I felt it prudent to refresh your awareness by re-posting a previous blog.
The US isn't that great either when it comes to the Native Americans. I've just started watching another documentary. I'm only 10 minutes into it and I'm just sick and disgusted. If you don't know, Residentail schools (in regard to Native Americans) are schools that NA kids who were stolen/taken from there families were forced to attend. They lived there and weren't allowed to speak their language, express their beliefs or culuture, etc.The last one in the US closed in 1986.That's bad enough, but this documentary is about Residential schools in Canada where children were systematically KILLED and MOLESTED. Even worse, it was in the name of the church (I believe Catholic, but I'm not done watching yet).The people who decided to do this are no better than Hitler. Watch Documentary.
