This picture always gets to me. Just because they tried to assimilate by taking the indian out of the man. “only once that is gone, then they will be considered men” Hair is such a significant meaning to Natives that when you see a before and after picture it is heartbreaking. This one in particular because they show the boy how he came in, then they show him a little while after. Residential schools are the biggest failed plan in the Canadian government’s history. The only thing it contributed to is to the death of young Native children. This pic is something that words cannot describe.

  24. thebirdthatmourns said: this should be an iconic picture in Canadian history, not just Native history. Everyone should know our story, and understand how damaging the Residential School system was. Unfortunately, some people just don’t care or are ignorant.
