On behalf of the BC Branch of CAMFT, we acknowledge the devastating confirmation of the discovery of the remains of 215 children that have recently been located in a mass grave on the grounds of the former Kamloops Indian Residential School.
We shed tears with the First Nation families and communities who are grieving. We shed tears for the grief that is in the present, as well the past, for those parents and families who lived with the terrible loss and trauma of never knowing what happened to their children.
I encourage you to complete the Sany’yas Indigenous Cultural Safety Training program if you have not taken it. The website is www.sanyas.ca.
