For centuries, the children of native first nations endured tremendous trauma within the confines of boarding schools, which were mostly run by the Roman Catholic Church. Assimilation was the primary purpose of these boarding schools, but we see time and time again examples of struggle and resistance against that assimilation effort. Louise Erdrich writes about this resistance in the chapter "Saint Marie" in her novel, Love Medicine.

The Sanctus Bell’s sole purpose is to inform the parish the beginning of Mass, which the parish responds by standing when the bell first rings (Papillo).
