Reliving the horrors of experiences in a residential school.
These institutions were set up by the Canadian and American governments to eradicate the Indian in the child.

They were run by Christian churches and funded by these governments.

The abuse against children was unbelievable with beatings,  rapes by Catholic priests, abuse by the nuns in the name of God, secret burials of children who had died and their deaths hidden by the church from families and the public.

Native children tortured even unto death in  the name of medical science similar to Adolf Hitlers death camps in this respect.

This documentary is a must see for anyone interested in what really happened to innocent children in these schools.
