Canada: Unmarked Graves Discovered at Formal Residential School; Tragic but not Surprising
The discovery of large numbers of unmarked graves at another former residential school in Saskatchewan, Canada has called for a new investigation. According to a statement released Wednesday by the Federation of Sovereign Indigenous Nations, the graves were discovered at the former Marieval Indian Residential School in the southeastern part of the province.
In a tweet, the national chief of the Assembly of First Nations Perry Bellegarde, said “I urge all Canadians to stand with First Nations in this extremely difficult and emotional time.” “The news that hundreds of unmarked graves have been found in Cowessess First Nation is absolutely tragic, but not surprising,”
This comes just weeks after the remains of 215 children, some as young as 3 years old, were found buried in unmarked graves on the grounds of a former residential school in Kamloops, British Columbia.
In a statement released on Wednesday by the Federation of Sovereign Indigenous Nations, which represents 74 First Nations in Saskatchewan. The First Nation, an Indigenous group said this is a “horrific and shocking discovery”.
The statement did not give the numbers of the unmarked graves that had been found, but it described the discovery as “the most significantly substantial to date in Canada,” suggesting that the number would be higher than that of last month findings.
In the days and weeks following the discovery in Kamloops, Indigenous leaders and Prime Minister Justin Trudeau had said there would probably be more discoveries as other residential school sites were searched. The announcement from Saskatchewan was met with expressions of sadness and outrage.
