More unmarked graves discovered in Canada

“We didn't know where we were going. We didn't know what was going to happen to us.” These were the sentiments of hundreds if not thousands of indigenous children in Canada who were sent off to boarding schools, by force.

Ripped from their families, the goal of the authorities back then was to forcibly assimilate them into “Canadian culture". But the fate of many of these children ended in death, their mass graves uncovered to this day, with many calling it a genocide.
