For 116 years, thousands of Aboriginal children in Alberta were sent to Indian Residential Schools funded by the federal government and run by the churches. They were taken from their families and communities in order to be stripped of language, cultural identity and traditions. 

Canada’s attempt to wipe out Aboriginal cultures failed. But it left an urgent need for reconciliation between Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal peoples. 

There were more Indian Residential Schools in Alberta than in any other province. The Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada (TRC) held its Alberta National Event in Edmonton this year. 

Come and share in the truth about the schools and their legacy. Witness and celebrate the resilience of Aboriginal cultures.
