An Open Letter to Tk’emlúps te Secwépemc Nation
As we enter into National Indigenous History Month it is important to reflect on the recent events in Kamloops regarding the discovery of 215 children in unmarked graves on the grounds of the Kamloops Residential School. We have released the following open letter as we stand in solidarity with the Tk’emlúps te Secwépemc Nation and all Indigenous communities while they grapple with this unconceivable tragedy.
