Nee Kee Wa Nan: We're Going Home Initiative

Fort Albany First Nation

December 2021 – Current

This initiative entails carrying out an Archaeological Overview Assessment and Ground Penetrating Radar (“GPR”) Field Survey of the grounds in the vicinity of the former school site to find unmarked remains and uncover the truth. The initiative will be led by Fort Albany First Nation and the Survivors who went to St. Anne’s Residential School. Preliminary searches suggest students who attended the school were from Fort Albany, Attawapiskat, Weenusk, Constance Lake, Moose Factory and Fort Severn. The six communities will undertake the work together, with Fort Albany leading the process.
