Did you know Indigenous children in Canada endured more than just Indian residential schools during the stolen children era? Indeed they did. In fact, for over a century, the Canadian Government used several school models to try to assimilate Indigenous children. In her talk, Dr. Prete will discuss the overarching policies that guided education for Indigenous children while revealing the multiple education models used. Her talk will focus on her Kainai (Blood) People.
