Honouring Memory

Canada's Residential Schools

This exhibition has ended

For a eighth consecutive year, the Museum presents its outdoor exhibition on McGill College Avenue.

The McCord Museum pays tribute to our people and our stories. This exhibit of archival photographs recalls the fate of thousands of Aboriginal children, who willingly or by force, grew up in residential schools intended to eradicate all traces of their culture.

In association with the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada, the McCord Museum is giving back to First Nations, Inuit and Métis people memories of their children.

It is also exposing this shameful attempt at assimilation. By honouring these stories, the Museum is taking part in the process of healing and reconciliation initiated by the Commission.

Not to be missed!
