Can Money Undo the Past? A Canadian Example.
Thomas, R. Murray
Comparative Education, v39 n3 p331-43 Aug 2003
In Canada, more than 9,000 lawsuits have been filed by American Indians and Inuits seeking reparations for the mistreatment Indigenous children suffered in residential schools operated by four religious groups and financed by the Canadian government. Although most suits allege "cultural damage" caused by schooling practices, little of the money spent and awarded in litigation will go toward maintaining or revitalizing plaintiffs' cultures.
