Thank you, Matthew! Your continued efforts to expose truth and seek justice are far too few! I am surprised at the suggest of both the UN & Vatican being considered as honest brokers in this situation with the native people's abuse by churches and governments over centuries - both are grossly tainted with their own histories of atrocities and abuse! Where can we look to find some who will have the integrity and power not only to investigate - we have had lots of that - but implement in a restorative way so that this type of exploitation never occurs again for the native peoples as well as any other groups which are the target of similar government isolation - read Christian faith groups while other faith groups are exempt.

The truth is not possible to express in this politically correct and hypersensitive world . The residential school system was a solution the government had come up with to a complicated problem . The native way of life was based on publicly shared land where one would hunt , harvest or grow food where ever one set up camp. this system worked with a small population scattered over a vast territory , and yet often led to wars between tribes. The settlers way of life was based on private ownership of a defined lot ,where each one grows his food from that piece of land . This system allowed for a much higher population on a given territory . In an Organized country , the two systems can not co-exist . The residential schools were meant to train the natives to adopt the settlers way of life . For some it was a success (those we dont hear about ,because they are successful and happy.) For others it was a fail because they could not , or did not adapt. The reality is that the native way of life , for good or for ill , is not possible anymore . The problems will exist until one way of life or the other is abandoned .

Thank you. First nations populations, around the world, have been respectful of nature but global geoengineering is omnicide! https://www.geoengineeringwatch.org/geoengineered-winter-weather-the-chemical-ice-nucleation-factor/#comment-1085554
