A comprehensive study of residential schools, the institutions where attendance by Native children was compulsory as recently as the 1960s. Former students have come forward in increasing numbers to describe the psychological and physical abuse they suffered in these schools,… and many view the system as an experiment in cultural genocide. Miller explores all three players in the story: the government officials who authorized the schools, the missionaries who taught in them, and the students who attended them. Co-winner of the 1996 Saskatchewan Book Award for nonfiction. Some descriptions of sex and violence, some strong language. 1996.
