^^Just keep the money rolling in.

 

Yes, seems like a few FN thought that a Papal apology would open up the floodgates to lawsuits and more money only to find out that the Pope and Vatican have immunity and that words carry no liability. Apology isn't so important now.

I believe this is some kind of cash-fuelled hysteria.



'Just the beginning:' 14 graves found at former residential school in Saskatchewan

https://beta.cp24.co.../1_5869337.html



WHO are the deceased? Do the First Nations have no idea whatsoever? Where are THEIR records?

Let’s start by digging up a few test cases. So far nobody is willing to do that.

Not on the extensive list is actually taking shovel to earth.

^ To be accurate, no graves have been found in Kamloops. What were found were "radar anomalies" which might be graves.

They are scared to dig anything up, if they do, and it proves to be anything but what they implied, the money truck drives away.

Alberta First Nation investigating human remains found near residential school site (msn.com)

 

In short:

human remains found in unmarked graves in their Saddle Lake Cree Nation's own cemetery in 2017. Remains were reburied. Nothing was reported to authorities.

 

Community claims roughly 4-5 children from each family went missing from the Blue Quills residential school located in Saddle Lake.

 

Saddle Lake Cree Nation claims to have uncovered other unmarked graves and a possible mass grave since as early as 2004.

 

Saddle Lake Cree Nation are looking for funding for ground penetrating radar.

What I don't get is how a band's "truth tellers" can recall details of events that occurred centuries ago with extraordinary accuracy, yet nobody seems to be able to recall the names or numbers of children that they claim went missing and died 50 years ago.

Or more recently.  It seems that many families haven't kept any record of their own family members.

The Saddle Lake Cree Nation, northeast of Edmonton, is investigating human remains believed to be of children found near the former Blue Quills Residential School site.

 

Eric Large, a residential school survivor, said in August 2017 he was doing work excavating new grave sites at the Saddle Lake community cemetery when he unexpectedly uncovered human remains.

 

"I came across some small bones. I couldn't tell what they were, from what parts of the body," Large told reporters on Tuesday.

 

"For myself, I was shocked. I didn't know what to do, except suggest putting them back into the same gravesite."

 

 

 

 

 

In short:  graveyard worker finds bones in graveyard while excavating in that graveyard.

It’s because those truth tellers use magical devices like spiritual ancestor communication to discern truth. And we give them mega $ to hear these stories, and we believe them.

https://tnc.news/202...sVW-Qvy34cVG_2c

 

 

i don't doubt that there are bodies buried at many of these schools, due to the length of time they were open (some date back 100+yrs) and at the time healthcare was not nearly what it is now, illness did happen, it did spread especially in dorm style situations and people did die there is no denying that.. there is also no denying that some schools were worse run then others and in some schools questionable things happened (experiments on malnutrition, vaccine trials.. this is openly known)

 

now what happened in the earlier years to what happened in the later years could easily be completely different, with more modern healthcare, parents making the choice to send their kids (vrs it being mandatory) and it becoming more about being a school with education and less about assimilation (since the later generations would most likely be second or third generation attending the school, english often the language spoken at home..)

This is my chief issue, from the article:


In fact, there is no evidence to support the claim that children secretly died or were killed and buried in the old apple orchard. There are no names associated with these allegedly missing children, no lists of children who had gone missing or unaccounted for, no parents or relatives who claim that their child was among the 215.

Who are the 215 children allegedly buried there? No one has the slightest idea.

__________

Not one of the many Indian Bands who sent children to the former Kamloops Indian Residential School, including the Kamloops Band itself, has ever come forward with the name of a single child who allegedly went to the school and never returned, and for whom the Band has been looking ever since. Not one.

There is thus absolutely no evidence of any child who attended KIRS from any Band in BC actually having gone missing, much less that any child was murdered and secretly buried in the apple orchard by six year olds. That tale appears to be the figment of overactive imaginations.

Some of this reminds me of the childcare sex abuse hysteria.
