Canadian government and church were culturally exterminating aboriginal people in 20th century

The government of Canada and Canadian churches had been pursuing the policy of cultural genocide against the aboriginal people of the country during the whole 20th century. As many as 150,000 children of Canada's native nations were forcibly removed from their families and incarcerated in residential schools rife with abuse.

After seven years of hearings, and testimony from thousands of witnesses, the country's Truth and Reconciliation Commission called on Tuesday for a new era of forgiveness and understanding even as it exposed the cultural and personal devastation inflicted by the residential schools policy in excruciating detail.

"These measures were part of a coherent policy to eliminate Aboriginal people as distinct peoples and to assimilate them into the Canadian mainstream against their will," the commission's final report declares.

"The Canadian government pursued this policy of cultural genocide because it wished to divest itself of its legal and financial obligations to Aboriginal people and gain control over their land and resources."
