On May 28, Canada and the world learned of of the 215 children buried in an unmarked mass grave at Kamloops Indian Residential School in British Columbia. Windsor Public Library grieves this tragic loss alongside our friends and colleagues across Canada.
At WPL, we are committed to reconciliation with First Nations and Urban Indigenous communities. We acknowledge our work takes place on the traditional territory of the Three Fires Confederacy of First Nations and the Wampum Treaties and that we peacefully share and care for the resources around the Great Lakes. We acknowledge the presence of the Ojiwae, Odawa, Potawatomi and the Huron/Wendat peoples. Windsor Public Library is a place to read, learn and discover the Truth and Reconciliation Call to Action and encourages the community to learn more about the devastating impact of residential schools.
