Description

Canada's First Nations and Cultural Genocide is the 2017 title from Rosen Publishing's series, Bearing Witness: Genocide and Ethnic Cleansing in the Modern World. For more than 100 years, the First Nations, Inuit, and Métis peoples in Canada endured an educational system designed to essentially remove all evidence of their Indigenous identities. Children were mistreated, abused and stripped of their identities as they received a substandard education. This insightful resource provides a history of Canada and outlines the development of attitudes that resulted in the residential education system, as well as a glimpse into the experiences of children who were forced to attend residential schools administered by various religious organizations. Includes bibliographical and index, archival and colour illustrations, timelines and a glossary. Ideal for grades six to 12; written at the guided reading level: Z. This is an exciting recent release about residential school system in Canada designed for understanding cultural genocide. Highly Recommended.
