Good grief, how awful

Yes, & I am in a city that had a residential catholic school. We have aboriginal people who were in it & remember the horrid treatment they got from nuns, priests, & teachers.

My husband has heard the stories directly from the older ones who still remember when he goes to town for coffee every day.

It's good that they are talking about it. Such a pity that anyone ever thought to treat people like this.

They did a documentary movie called "We Were Children", & I think it can be viewed on youtube.

The treatment of these young people is just awful. But what I would want to find out was why was so many first nation children contracting TB in the first place. It must have been the bad condition of their environment and homes.

I don't know, but I think some of those diagnoses were false......but then there is this......

That would often happen when Europeans came in contact with native peoples, but it was the bad conditions of those people that created the epidemics 

Yes, Europeans brought a lot of stuff that the natives had no resistance to, & much of it was fatal.

Or like it was with our mob. They gave them blankets infected with smallpox. As we had contact with the people the people north of us and we didn't drop off like flies with that contact. 

 To purposely spread fatal diseases is beyond cruel.

''Wonderful'' lot.....
