17. They came from reservations across western Canada

That was the worst part of the residential school system. They didn't even keep the kids in the same region they came from, mostly to destroy their roots and lessen the chance they would try to run home. Their parents often didn't even know where they had been sent to. What's weird, my white mother actually went to school at the Kamloops residential school for a year in 1940/41 because it was the nearest boarding school to her family's farm which was out in the middle of nowhere. That's all I know about it because she never really spoke about it.
