Abuse in the Aboriginal Residential Schools in Canada & The Mushkegowuk Cree of Fort Albany, Ontario
[ send me this essay ]
This is a 10 page paper discussing abuse in Aboriginal residential schools in Canada and in particular that in Fort Albany, Ontario. Throughout the 19th and 20th centuries in Canada, the federal government in partnership with a number of religious organizations ran over 130 “residential schools” for Aboriginals. Originally intended to promote the assimilation of the Aboriginal people within white society, by the time the majority of the schools closed in the 1960s and 1970s, it soon became obvious that in addition to religion and education being promoted within the schools, so too was a horrific amount of physical and sexual abuse being performed. Generations of Aboriginals who passed through the schools have suffered a great deal from the abuse and are trying within their own communities to heal from their ordeals. The federal government in addition to providing funding to aid in the healing programs has also released a formal Statement of Reconciliation and several actions plans for the communities. The Mushkegowuk Cree of Fort Albany, Ontario is one such community affected by the horrors experienced in their residential school. Ste. Anne’s residential school in Fort Albany run by the Roman Catholic diocese has not only be accused of hundreds of cases of physical and sexual abuse but was also known for its use of a home-made electric chair with which it punished and tortured its students. In addition to a number of legal claims against those who ran the school, the community has also undergone a recent rejuvenation process which has included the renovation of the old school in addition to the building of a new educational complex where the children do not have to leave their families for their education; one of the many needed steps for healing. Some tutorial language is used throughout and inserted with square brackets to assist the customer with the writing process. Bibliography lists 10 sources.
