  Can money undo the past? A Canadian example
Titel: Can money undo the past? A Canadian example
Auteur: Thomas, R. Murray
Verschenen in: Comparative education
Paginering: Jaargang 39 (2003) nr. 3 pagina's 331-343
Jaar: 2003-08
Inhoud: In Canada, more than 9,000 lawsuits have been filed against the government and four Christian denominations on behalf of American Indians and Inuits for the mistreatment indigenous peoples allegedly suffered in residential schools operated for more than a century by these four religious groups and financed by the Canadian government. The ultimate cost of the suits might reach billions of dollars. Offences charged in the suits include sexual/physical abuse and cultural damage, with by far the most claims focusing on cultural damage. The only suits accepted by the courts by 2003 concerned sexual/physical abuse. Whether cultural damage would be admissible for court action had not yet been determined. This article focuses primarily on the question of how much of the money spent on the suits has gone toward attempts to repair the schools' damage to individuals and indigenous cultures.
