British Columbia Kamloops Residential School has hosted 500 children

A mass grave with the remains of 215 children was found in an old residential school built for Indigenous students in Canada.

The children were students of Kamloops Indian Residential School in British Columbia, which closed in 1978.

The discovery was announced on Thursday (27) by the head of the First Nation, Tk’emlups te Secwepemc.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said it was a “painful reminder” of the “shameful chapter in our country’s history”. The First Nation Museum is working with experts and coroners to establish the causes and timing of the deaths, which are not even known at the moment. .
