Learn Me Something

The History of Residential Schools in Canada

Synopsis This week on "Learn Me Something," Aaron and Rich delve into the dark and unsettling history of residential schools in Canada.

When the school is on the reserve the child lives with its parents, who are savages; he is surrounded by savages, and though he may learn to read and write, his habits and training and mode of thought are Indian. He is simply a savage who can read or write. – Sir John A Macdonald, speech to Commons, 1883
