Cree of Chisasibi to search for graves at residential school sites in northern Quebec – CityNews

MONTREAL — The Cree Nation of Chisasibi said Tuesday it will search for unmarked graves at the sites of five residential schools that operated on Fort George Island, in northern Quebec.

The nation said it decided to “seek its lost children” with the use of ground-penetrating radar after extensive consultation with the community, including elders and residential school students and survivors.

“A majority of people said: ‘We need to know, let’s seek the truth. We know there were questionable activities,'” Chief Daisy House said in an interview.

The five sites are linked to Catholic and Anglican residential schools that were among the largest and longest-operating in the province, closing in 1981 and 1975 respectively.
