Residential Schools and a First Nation’s Perspective
This paper is a First Nation’s perspective of residential schools.
This paper takes a look at the damages caused to First Nations families by residential schools even though the government at that time felt it was the right thing to do.
`The government felt that by sending First Nations people to residential schools they were bettering themselves for the future ahead of them. They felt that their way, `the Indian way`, of life was of a lesser quality than that of the European way of life and education. They wanted to make them equal to the white man. The federal government began to play a role in the development and administration of the residential school systems as early as 1874, done mainly to meet its obligation, under the Indian Act, to provide an education and lifestyle for the Aboriginal people.`
