Where are the Children?

Legacy of Hope
May 27 - June 30

The Vernon Public Art Gallery presented a portion of the traveling exhibit: Where are the Children by the Legacy of Hope. Between 1831 and 1996, residential schools operated in Canada through arrangements between the Government of Canada and the Roman Catholic Church, Anglican, Methodist, United and Presbyterian churches. This partnership ended in 1996, with the Government of Canada taking over the management of residential schools adn beginning the transfer of control to Indian bands. The last federally-run residential school, Gordon Indian Residential School in Punnichy, Saskatchewan, closed in 1996.
