In 1966, 12-year-old Chanie Wenjack froze to death on the railway tracks after running away from residential school. An inquest was called, and four recommendations were made to prevent another tragedy. None of those recommendations were applied. More than a quarter of a century later, from 2000 to 2011, seven Indigenous high school students died in Thunder Bay, Ontario. The seven were hundreds of miles away from their families, forced to leave home and live in a foreign and unwelcoming city.
Essential reading for Canadians

A must read for all Canadians

This book eloquently weaves the sinister colonial past of Canada with the painful truth of the systemic racism it has left for Canadians to grapple with today. I would recommend this book to anyone wishing to gain insight into indigenous history and present struggle. We can only achieve true reconciliation through understanding.
