Educating Canadians On Residential Schools Is Historica Canada's Next Big Project

The organization that tackles Canada's history also has a podcast on the topic.

Historica Canada, the non-profit behind the popular Canadian Heritage Minute series, is tackling the residential school system.

The collection of animated videos, which take their audio from a podcast the organization launched, looks at a painful chapter for Indigenous Canadians. The system forcibly removed thousands of Indigenous children from their homes to live in state-funded schools in an effort to assimilate them into a Euro-Canadian culture.
