Nearly 100 “potential” graves were identified at a residential school site in Canada, months after the discovery of hundreds of children’s remains at former residential schools rocked the country.
The Williams Lake First Nation community said that a geographical survey revealed “93 reflections” with characteristics “indicative of potential human burials” at the former St. Joseph’s Mission residential school in British Columbia.
Since May last year, more than 1 000 anonymous graves have been found near former “Indian residential schools” that were run by religious groups in an effort to “convert” Indians.
Numerous investigations into former residential schools are underway across the country, with between 4,000 and 6,000 children believed to be missing, according to authorities.
A truth and reconciliation commission concluded in 2015 the failed government policy amounted to “cultural genocide.”
