MAP­PING CANADA’S HIS­TORY OF RES­I­DEN­TIAL SCHOOLS

Canadian Geographic - - YOUR SOCIETY - —Tanya Kir­nishni

With the sup­port of the Na­tional Cen­tre for Truth and Rec­on­cil­i­a­tion, Cana­dian Geo­graphic Ed­u­ca­tion re­cently be­came the first Cana­dian or­ga­ni­za­tion to launch a story with Google Earth Voy­ager. Canada’s Res­i­den­tial Schools ad­dresses a dark chap­ter in our his­tory, weav­ing pho­to­graphs and videos with first-hand ac­counts from sur­vivors. It aims to help ed­u­cate all Cana­di­ans about th­ese schools and to in­spire In­dige­nous and non-in­dige­nous peo­ple to work to­gether to­ward rec­on­cil­i­a­tion. Go to can­geo.ca/ma18/voy­ager to ex­plore the Google Voy­ager story.
