It’s been one year since members of Tk’emlúps te Secwépemc learned that 215 suspected unmarked graves had been detected in the apple orchard near the former Kamloops Indian Residential School.
The red-bricked institution of assimilation is a haunting visual landmark. Its doors have been shuttered since 1978, but its darkened windows still overlook the South Thompson River in B.C.’s central Interior.
Many of its survivors had always known about Le Estcwicwéy̓ — the missing children — and the preliminary findings of the ground-penetrating radar only confirmed their deepest fears.
Tk’emlúps te Secwépemc mourned for a traditional one-year period and on Monday, welcomed visitors from across the country to join them in a memorial for the ones who never made it home.
