The final report of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC) was made public on Tuesday. Its main findings – including the determination that what happened behind the walls of the church-run schools amounted to cultural genocide – were released last spring along with a list of 94 “calls to action” to address ongoing problems. What is being put forward now is thousands of pages of contextual details, historical data and voices of survivors.
One section is devoted to the commission’s assertion that the students who perished in the institutions must be identified and their remains located.
