This is part of the history of First Nation, Metis and Inuit persons in Canada. I am putting this out there for allies and people who are looking for more information.  This again is not a comprehensive list of resources about Indian Residential School but hopefully it is a good start and a good lead to forward your understanding of the topic. 

Background information:

Report on Industrial Schools for Half-breeds and Indians, March 1879, Nicolas Flood Davin

Royal Commission on Aboriginal Peoples in Canada, 1996: 

Chapter 10:  Residential Schools

Where are the Children?

Interactive Website by the Aboriginal Healing Foundation.  It’s a couple years old but very well put together.
