Listen To First Nations' Stories
We Stand Together
On May 27, the First Nations community was shaken when the remains of 215 First Nations children were found in unmarked graves on what was once a residential school in Kamloops, B.C. Some of the children were as young as three years old.
 
These are the voices of our First Nations pained by the loss, frustrated by systemic racism and oppression, and the stories of survivors who lived through horrific conditions at these schools.
 
Listen to the interviews on U Radio.
