Residential school administration

Share Share Share Share Share Share Share



But everything changed when the government took over the school administration in 1957. Everything gradually disappeared. The French missionaries disposed of the livestock, the cows and horses. Horses were left in the bush to die. The pigs and chickens were destroyed, this was in 1957. From this gradual closure in 1957, a new priest replaced Father Leguierre, our former supervisor. Everything was given up, the tools and the livestock. They did not give these things to the community including the large gardens to manage. That’s how it was. Eventually English was introduced and students were sent to the south for school. Now First Nations are in control of everything.
