WINNIPEG — A Manitoba First Nation is looking for unmarked graves at the site of a former residential school
In the wake of the horrific discoveries in Kamloops, B.C., and other former residential school sites, Sagkeeng First Nation fundraised to pay for a search of its former residential school grounds, as well as other areas in the community.
“You just can’t go missing and be gone, you have to be somewhere right?” said Chief Derrick Henderson of Sagkeeng First Nation.
On Tuesday, crews began a survey of the former residential school site where the band council office now stands. The search is using a drone and ground penetrating radar technology.
