Residential Schools

Schools that were developed by different religious institutions and often financially supported by the federal government. The schools were developed as a primary tool for assimilating young Aboriginal children into the ways of the western world or dominant culture. Religious instruction was paramount with often less than half of the day spent in educational activities.
