Indigenous people, pictured June 3, 2021, taking part in a drumming ceremony on the Hill to honour the remains of the 215 Indigenous children discovered in May in Kamloops, B.C., near the former site of the Kamloops Indian Residential School. Since then, the remains of another 182 Indigenous children have been found in Cranbrook, B.C., and another 751 in Cowessess, Sask. As Cowessess First Nation Chief Cadmus Delorme said, 'All we ask of all of you listening is that you stand by us as we heal and get stronger. All must put down our ignorance and accidental racism of not addressing the truth that this country has with Indigenous people. We are not asking for pity, but we are asking for understanding,' writes Andrew Cardozo. The Hill Times photograph by Sam Garcia

Young Indigenous boys, pictured in this undated photograph, at the Metlakatla Indian Residential School in British Columbia. So when the churches ran almost all the residential schools, it wasn't like Sir John A. Macdonald had to go out and twist their arms to run them. The churches by then had a long history of “educating” Indigenous peoples. Making them civilized. Beating the Indian out of them, writes Andrew Cardozo.
