Pairs of children's shoes and toys are seen at a memorial in front of the former Kamloops Indian Residential School in Kamloops, British Columbia, Canada, May 31, 2021. Between 1831 and 1996, Canada's residential school system forcibly separated about 150,000 children from their homes and subjected them to abuse, rape and malnutrition at schools across the country in what the Truth and Reconciliation Commission in 2015 called "cultural genocide." Run by the government and church groups, the schools' stated aim was to assimilate indigenous children.

Kamloops residents and First Nations people gather to listen to drummers and singers at a memorial in front of the former Kamloops Indian Residential School in Kamloops, British Columbia, Canada May 31, 2021. Saa Hiil Thut, who spent his teenage years at the Kamloops Indian Residential School, remembers the hunger, the loneliness and the fear. "My life became hateful to me," the 72-year-old St’at’imc Nation member told Reuters. He was sexually abused by one of the staff, he said, and remembers lying in bed in the silent dormitory, weeping. "I couldn't help but think it's monsters that done this, to put bodies in an unmarked grave site."

The main administrative building at the Kamloops Indian Residential School is seen in Kamloops, British Columbia, Canada circa 1970. Amid growing outrage, the federal government said on Wednesday it will urgently disburse money promised two years ago to indigenous communities that want to search former school sites for the remains of children. In 2019, the government promised C$33.8 million ($28.1 million) over three years to support, among other things, locating the bodies of children who attended the schools. Of that, C$27.1 million has yet to be spent.

The grounds of the former Kamloops Indian Residential School are seen in a satellite photograph taken over Kamloops, British Columbia, Canada May 21, 2021. Elizabeth Prosser, the youngest of 13, was the only one of her siblings not to attend Kamloops Indian Residential School. But the now-55-year-old, a member of the Tsal’alh nation, felt the school’s ripple effects. Two of her older brothers, subjected to verbal, physical and sexual abuse at the school, turned that treatment on her, she said. "It just tore us apart. When do we get compensated for stuff like that? ... It destroyed my life."

Wilson said she wants to see an independent investigation of this burial site and others, possibly involving the United Nations. "This is a larger story beyond residential schools. They broke down our family structures, our governance, our nations, our communities. It's a travesty that our children bore the brunt of that genocide," she said. "Our villages were like ghost villages, with no children."
