We will be discussing the Pros and Cons of the Residential School Settlement with someone who has worked on many cases.
The Canadian Indian residential school system was intended to assimilate the children of the Aboriginal peoples of Canada into European-Canadian society. The purpose of the schools, which separated children from their families, has also been described as cultural genocide or "killing the Indian in the child."
