Throughout the 1800’s and early 1900’s, the United States had many programs and policies that focused on the assimilation of American Indian children into Christian culture. In 1819 the Civilization Fund was initiated with the purpose of financially assisting religious organizations whose goals included civilizing the American Indian. The Civilization Fund led to the establishment of numerous boarding schools. The boarding schools became mandatory and were meant to separate American Indian children from their tribes. Many American Indian children completely lost contact with their parents and extended family after being placed in one of the boarding schools.
As Canadians, we are proud of being multicultural and accepting of different cultures, however, residential schools represent the opposite of the ideas the majority of Canadians now harbour. Regardless of this fact, it is extremely important that we continue to talk about residential schools in order to reconcile with the aboriginals who had their identities taken from them. In my opinion, trying to bury the unpleasant events in the past shows disrespect to the people who suffered through those times. Brushing off such events gives the impression that it isn’t important enough to be discussed. Additionally, many residential school survivors actually want their stories to be told so they can shed light upon the injustice that their people endured and so that no other decisions are made out of ignorance.
Research has shown that they could suffer from Residential School Syndrome, which has some symptoms that are similar to those of post-traumatic stress disorder (Barton, 2005). In turn, this can have a negative impact on some, if not all, aspects of an individual’s life, because these symptoms tend to remain with a person forever and are exceedingly difficult to eliminate in a short period of time. Moreover, residential school survivors have been noted to possess low self-esteem, bad parenting skills, and unsatisfactory social skills- all of which can be attributed to the detrimental and abrupt disruption of their childhood (Barton, 2005). Embodying these qualities is extremely toxic and will most likely affect a child’s ability to maintain a positive outlook on life once they reach
The schools that David went to would often ignore clear signs of starvation and neglect and would often punish David; however, never to the extent of David’s mother Catherine. Eventually after David being stabbed followed procedure and called for the police to take action. Another time I would like to look into are the multiple failings of neighbor kids and neighbor parents. Neighbor kids, friends of David’s brothers, would often see David in unusual punishments. Punishments including David having to lay under cold water for many hours.

“And yet where in your history books is the tale/ Of the genocide basic to this country 's birth/ Of the preachers who lied, how the Bill of Rights failed/ How a nation of patriots returned to their earth.” This quote succinctly describes the suffering Aboriginal peoples have endured since European settlers arrived in North America and the lack of education about Residential Schools in Canada. The history of Residential Schools is important to the future of Canada and to understand Canada’s past. The history of Residential Schools is impossible, in the sense that it is incomplete and only recently recorded. Many of the 150 000 Inuit, Metis, and First Nations who were forced into these assimilatory schools have already died, meaning their experiences are lost. Only a fraction of the former students’ stories will be
Residential schools were indubitably gruesome and immoral acts by the federal government to assimilate the Aboriginal culture to gain power. I was very surprised to learn that 150 000 Aboriginal children were forced to attend residential schools. It is crazy to fathom that so many human beings were tortured, neglected, abused and treated wrongfully while others let it happen for decades. I also found it surprising that the government surveyed the Aboriginal communities and the number one complaint was residential schools and yet no action was taken. If the federal government never intended to listen to the Aboriginals then why did they bother spending time doing surveys in the first place?
In comparison, Anne Frank was forced to go into hiding and barely had any food to eat-while my father was lucky to be able to go outdoors and school. Thus, both of them had a meager amount of food to eat and were affected by a war; my father and Anne left their country due to the war that was happening. Anne left Germany to Netherlands in order to elude from Adolf Hitler and the Nazi Party, which made the lives of Jewish people harsher. Anne was able to overcome the situation she was in due to her ecstatic attitude; being locked in a basement for two years, she was able to survive and be jubilant day by day. Hence, Anne was able to withstand the situation until she was unluckily taken to a concentration camp.
