Kaatagoging: Residential School Survivors Initiative

Wauzhushk Onigum Nation

July 2021 – Current

This project 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 project will be led by the Elders who went to St. Mary’s. The preparation of this proposal has taken place through a series of very difficult conversations with Wauzhushk Onigum Elders and their families about intergenerational trauma and the long journey towards healing.

School of focus: St. Mary’s Residential School
