Return to Atlantic School of Theology teaches history of abuse at Indian residential schools

There is more to the story of the residential schools than tales of abuse and cultural genocide. The morality and ethics that lay behind the dedication of many staff members at the schools should also be explored. As a non-aboriginal who attended an Indian residential school for six years, and who saw first-hand the care and affection with which the children were treated, I am disappointed that all one sees or hears in the media about the schools is negative.

If AST is interested in providing its students with a more rounded view of what went on in residential schools, I'd be happy to come in and talk about what it was like to be the son of a Principal of one such school, and to have attended that residential school with First Nations children for six years. My Dad was an Anglican minister who was respected and even loved by the Blackfoot whom he served.
