Summary, etc.: "Canada's Residential Schools: The History, Part 1, Origins to 1937 places Canada's residential school system in the historical context of European campaigns to colonize and convert Indigenous people throughout the world. In post-Confederation Canada, the government adopted what amounted to a policy of cultural genocide: suppressing languages and spiritual practices, disrupting traditional economies, and imposing new forms of government. Residential schooling quickly became a central element in this policy."
