OTTAWA, ON, May 31, 2021 /CNW Telbec/ – Les Femmes Michif Otipemisiwak/Women of the Métis Nation, the National Indigenous Women’s Organization representing women across the Métis Motherland, gather in memory and respect for the 215 precious young lives lost, whose remains were recently discovered at Kamloops Indian Residential School.

We commend the federal government’s symbolic gesture of lowering flags to half-mast on all federal buildings across Canada. We also appreciate Crown-Indigenous Relations and Northern Affairs Canada’s acknowledgment of “the heart-breaking details of the role that residential schools played in the history of Canada and the tragic legacy that continues today.”
