Statement on the Kamloops Indian Residential School

At Talonbooks we grieve for the children whose lives were lost at the Kamloops Indian Residential School and for their families and communities. We stand in support of the Indigenous communities across Canada who have suffered the impacts of colonial violence. We offer our solidarity and our love.

We support the call for funding for ground-penetrating radar to be used at the sites of all former residential schools.

As publishers, we will continue to respond to the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada’s Calls to Action related to writing and publishing and to work to uplift and support the voices of Indigenous Peoples.

The Indian Residential Schools Crisis Line is available toll-free at 1-866-925-4419.
