The Aboriginal Healing Foundation, an Indigenous-run corporation set up in the 1990s to help mitigate the harm done by residential schools says, “The students’ experiences of residential schools were not all bad. Different people had differing experiences. Many dedicated, good people worked in the system.”

Of course, the AHF also points out that the schools operated by churches and social organizations from the late-19th through to the mid-20th centuries were, overall, a disaster for Indigenous people.
