Serpent River First Nation | Sagamok Anishinabek | Mississauga First Nation

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 Serpent River First Nation and the survivors who attended the Spanish Indian Residential Schools: St. Peters Claver School for Boys and St. Joseph’s School for Girls. This includes the communities of Sagamok Anishinabek Nation, Mississauga First Nation and Serpent River First Nation.

School of focus: Spanish Indian Residential School
