With thousands of remains of Indigenous children recently uncovered in mass graves at residential schools in “Canada,” collective Indigenous rage has been sparked to address the brutal legacy of colonial schools. In this show we share our personal experiences, and discuss how we cannot address the brutal horrors of assimilation through forced education without facing how its colonial legacy continues to fulfill its vicious objectives.
