Canada Celebrating National Indigenous Peoples Day Today

Editor's note: This article contains some disturbing details about experiences at residential schools in Canada and may be upsetting to some readers.

The discovery comes soon after another mass grave was unearthed by the Tk'emlups te Secwepemc First Nation at the former Kamloops Residential School in British Columbia last month.

However the group did not specify the exact number of graves found. He says his government has a moral obligation to help find unmarked grave sites and honour those victims.

A national Indian Residential School Crisis Line has been set up to provide support for former students and those affected.

Cowessess First Nation has made a "horrific and shocking discovery" of hundreds of burial sites on the grounds of the former Marieval Indian Residential School, according to a press release from the Federation of Sovereign Indigenous Nations (FSIN).

The recent finding of what are believed to be 215 children's remains buried at the site of a Kamloops, B.C., residential school has magnified interest in the troubling legacy in both the USA and Canada. "I urge all Canadians to stand with First Nations in this extremely hard and emotional time", he wrote on Twitter.

Survivors who spoke with Reuters have recalled perpetual hunger and haunting loneliness, and schools run under the threat and frequent use of force.

Canada's federal government apologised for the system in 2008.

Ontario has committed $10 million and Alberta $8 million for Indigenous communities to locate and investigate grounds surrounding residential schools in those provinces.

Earlier this month, Pope Francis said he was pained but did not apologise, in a statement dismissed by survivors.

He said First Nations children in northern Manitoba were often forcibly removed from their homes to go to residential schools, adding that many of them were never able to return to their families.
