The recent discovery of 215 bodies at the Kamloops Residential School in British Columbia, Canada surprised everyone except Native people. For several decades survivors of these genocidal institutions have told stories of the abuse, neglect and violence that they experienced at these schools but the general public largely ignored them. In this episode, we take another look at the genocidal residential school system implemented by the Canadians and the Americans. Author and historian Keith Burich joins John to discuss the history and long-term impacts of the residential school system. Closing song is "War Club" by DJ Shub feat. Snotty Nose Rez Kids. →→→→ Like what you hear? Support the show on Patreon! https://www.patreon.com/letstalknative ←←←←
