Canadian Senator Murray Sinclair, the former Chair of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada, has produced a Residential school reading list
"Many of you have asked for a reading list on the topic of residential
schools. Ask and ye shall receive. Here’s part of a larger reading list
"There are several related topics of course which I recommend people
take a look at such as Genocide, Colonization/Decolonization, Indigenous
activism, child welfare and Indigenous children, Indigenous people and
the Justice system etc. I also highly recommend all of Vine Deloria’s
books, Thomas King’s Inconvenient Indian, Richard Wagamese’s book Indian
Horse, all of the Research papers compiled by the Aboriginal Healing
Foundation ... and the website of the National Centre for Truth and Reconciliation ..."
In 2015, the Commission released its findings after its years-long investigation into the many abuses against Indigenous children at Church-run Indian Residential Schools
in the 19th and 20th centuries.
