  1. Not every native kid had a hard time in residential schools,But of course they make it sound like they did ,especially after some started getting money for the way they were treated.If you look at the native kids that went to these schools and the kids today ,the kids of the past generations were more educated ,more respectful towards other people and were nice people ,Nowadays what do you have , kids with no discipline whatsoever ,thinking they are entitled to the world ,They have tantrums if they dont get their own way and they think nothing of going to jail .The native tribes were conquered ,other people from other countries would have just killed them off.There was no choice but to educate them and civilize them ,if they didnt they all would have died off eventually. In invasion there is no reimbursements or we are sorries,Its more like just be thankful they let you live on .Thats the way it goes ,,anywhere on this planet.You have to evolve to protect yourself ,the indigenous people hadnt even invented the wheel .think about it.You can get mad ,call me names .or whatever but it doesnt change what had to be done in the past or what wasnt done.

  4. Great video! This truth should not be kept as a secret or be afraid to be told..Its a gift. Thank you!

  5. Enfranchisement also seemed like a good deal to some Indigenous people since the trade-off meant you would be seen and treated as a human being and have more rights, like purchasing alcohol where there were bans. They didn't have the foresight to see this would affect generations of their family and would be considered non-status, but I have met a girl whose grandfather preferred being non-status since every Indigenous person's name is in a list or registry, they view it as the same level as Hitler keeping track of the Jews. It's a complicated subject.

  6. Why are there no comment (Hmm) do people even know what happen, I mean do they have any HUMANITY.
