For over a century, the central goals of Canada's Aboriginal policy were to eliminate Aboriginal governments; ignore Aboriginal rights; terminate the Treaties; and through a process of assimilation, cause Aboriginal people to cease to exist as a distinct legal, social, cultural, religious, and racial entities in Canada, the report concludes, and the establishment and operation of residential schools were a central element in this policy, which can best be described as cultural genocide. It covers the history, the school experience, the legacy, reconciliation, and calls to action. ([umlaut] Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR)
