Contemporary Experiences and Issues



Ruby's Story

This blog by âpihtawikosisân discusses the experiences of a First Nations seven-year-old student in Grade 2 when she decided to present information about residential schools for a class assignment.  Ruby (a pseudonym) wanted to share information about why she doesn't speak her First Nations language, and "the effects Indian Residential School has had on her family and community in terms of language."  Her choice of topic was met with disapproval and criticism by her teacher.


Why is Ottawa consigning First Nations to inferior education?
