Remembering the Children Educational Package
Missing children and the existence of unmarked burial sites at Residential Schools across Canada have been well-known for decades among Indigenous communities. However, Canadians are still grappling with the truths about Residential Schools, spurring long-overdue conversations inside and outside the classroom.
Remembering the Children, the National Centre for Truth and Reconciliation’s publication for students, offers a way to begin those conversations. It takes readers to a variety of Residential Schools across time and space, opening a door into a past that reverberates today, while also celebrating the resilience and resurgence of First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples’ culture.
In schools, teachers and students are learning together about truth and acting together for reconciliation. Ongoing investigations at the sites of former Residential Schools have become the starting point for opening up these discussions and beginning this learning.
Students and teachers all over Canada will be at different stages of learning. We hope that the Remembering the Children publication and educator’s guide provide you with content, resources, voices and ideas so that you can continue these important conversations all year long.
Canada’s National History Society and the National Centre for Truth and Reconciliation are grateful to all educators who are taking on this important work.
