"Cultural Genocide", Canada admits

The boarding schools -

a major ruling - when will the USA follow suit? My book "Flight of the Goose" deals with some of this dark psychic legacy - a cultural epigenetic PTSD from the enforced boarding schools for Native American children (which were actually prison and forced labor camps, secret sexual and physical abuse camps far from the public eye, and for thousands of poor kids, death camps). 
After a six-year investigation, the Truth and Reconciliation Commission report concluded: "The Canadian government pursued this policy of cultural genocide because it wished to divest itself of its legal and financial obligations to aboriginal people and gain control over their lands and resources. If every aboriginal person had been 'absorbed into the body politic,' there would be no reserves, no treaties and no aboriginal rights."
