The Board and staff of Wigwamen Incorporated are heartbroken by the discovery of the 215 deceased and undocumented children at the former Indian residential school in Kamloops, British Columbia.
As one, we extend our deepest condolences to the Tk’emlúps te Secwépemc and West Coast Nation communities for the loss of countless children that were abducted and taken to residential schools, never to be seen again. And as one, our thoughts are with our residential school survivors, their families, and all who mourn from learning about this traumatic event.
During this time of reflection, we urge everyone to learn more about the legacy of Canada’s Indian residential schools and the lasting impacts they have caused on Indigenous communities, as well as the 94 Calls to Action contained in the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada’s final report.
For 24-hour crisis support, the National Indian Residential School Crisis Line has been set up to provide support for former residential school survivors. You can access emotional and crisis referral services by calling the national crisis line at 1-866 925-4419.
