KILL THE INDIAN AND NOT THE CHILD


1909, Dr. Peter Bryce, general medical superintendent for Indian Affairs reported to the Ministry that between 1894-`908 the mortality rate in western Canadian residential schools was between 35%-60%! The statistic became public in 1922. Dr. Bryce retired from his position in DIA and wrote a book, The Story of a National Crime: Being a Record of the Health Conditions of the Indians of Canada from 1904 to 1921. He also alleged in his book that he felt the high death rate was deliberate because healthy children had been exposed to diseases such as tuberculosis.

In the early 1920's another doctor, F.A. Corbett while working in Alberta found similar startling statistics at various residential schools, includingm Hobbema, and Sarcee. At Sarcee, only four kids from over thirty did not have tuberculosis. Moreover, with such a high illness and near death rate, the children still had to attend classes, because what would the so-called teachers have to do if they didn't?

As history shows these public-record tragedies caused barely a ripple on the collective Canadian conscience.
