George Kennedy GHUM 10354/03/18Residential SchoolsThe indigenous residential school system was created for the purpose of removing children from the influence of their own culture, home, families and tradition. They would instead learn the Canadian ways and be brainwashed from any history of their own. Over the course of the system's more than hundred-year existence, about 30%, or roughly 150,000, of *-Indigenous children were placed in residential schools nationally.The obligation of residential schools on First Nations children has led to physical and mental abuse from living conditions, significant loss of indigenous language, and major long-ter=]m impacts for future indigenous generations.The education system for the indigenous people is more damaging then repairing. The instability of these children going to school and potentially getting bullied in physical, mental and sexual abuse caused not only a damage to their emotional state but their views on school andlearning. One example of this is children were abused for speaking their indigenous language.
