Stolen Lives is a groundbreaking resource, designed for Canadian educators, that provides an examination of the Indian Residential Schools and their long-lasting effects on Canada’s Indigenous Peoples. Through primary source material, first-person accounts, and questions that lead to rich classroom conversations, students learn about this tragic history, and can analyze the devastating effects that the residential schools have on former students, their families, and entire indigenous communities. Facing History’s unique approach empowers educators to connect this history to today’s conversations about the apologies given by the government and churches, the work of the Canadian Truth and Reconciliation Commission, and the debate about whether the colonial policies these schools embodied amount to genocide.
