The KUC Global and Community group invite everyone to view the video “The Fallen Feather” on June 24 at 7 pm.
Between 1879 and 1986, upwards of 100,000 children in Canada were forcibly removed and placed into Indian Industrial Residential Schools. Their unique culture was stripped away to be replaced with a foreign European identity. Their family ties were cut, parents were forbidden to visit their children, and the children were prevented from returning home.First Nations children were the only children in Canadian History, to be singled out by race and forced to live in institutions; generation after generation.
