<<'I forgive you': Indigenous school survivor awaits pope's apology
As Pope Francis visits Canada, a survivor of the Ermineskin residential school hopes to hear an apology – in person.
Warning: The story below contains details about abuse in residential schools that may be upsetting. Canada's National Indian Residential School Crisis Line is available 24 hours a day on 1-866-925-4419.
Maskwacis, Canada – When Flora Northwest was six years old she was forced to leave her parents to attend what was then known as Ermineskin Indian Residential School in Alberta, western Canada, along with other Indigenous children. For the next 10 years, Flora lived at the school where she says she endured physical, spiritual, verbal and sexual abuse at the hands of the priests, nuns and staff who ran the institution. The pain of those years has never quite left her. Seven decades later, in early April this year, Flora, from her home in Samson Cree Nation, one of four First Nations which make up the Maskwacis community of central Alberta, watched in disbelief as Pope Francis made a historic apology for the Catholic Church’s role in the forcible removal of Indigenous children from their families and the abuses and neglect committed in Canada's residential schools.
<When I realised that he apologised, I started to cry,> the 77-year-old with deep brown eyes framed by furrows and her white hair pulled back, recounts on a sunny July morning. She sits amid towering trees in the expansive grassy back yard of her eldest son’s rural home, the same place where she once raised her children, in Samson Cree Nation. Following the 2015 report from the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada to examine the legacy of residential schools, survivors called on the pope to apologise. <I thought, what made him change his mind? What made him make that apology? Why did it take so long?> Flora says. From July 24 to 29, Pope Francis is in Canada for a pastoral visit of healing and reconciliation with survivors of the Indian residential school system. From July 24 to 29, Pope Francis is in Canada for a pastoral visit of healing and reconciliation with survivors of the Indian residential school system. On July 25, the pope will visit Maskwacis (formerly known as Hobbema), which in the Cree language means <Bear Hills>, and the place where Ermineskin residential school – now torn down – one of the largest of these institutions, once stood. Many anticipate an apology.
This visit to Maskwacis, home to about 8,000 Indigenous people, will be the only First Nations community he will set foot on. The pope's visit to her community is something an elated Flora says she could not have conjured in her wildest dreams. It is an opportunity to repair gaping wounds left by the church.
Now, Flora is hoping to hear that apology again but in person.
....
More than 150,000 Indigenous children attended the institutions from the late 1800s until 1997 when the last school closed. Abuses were widespread and Indigenous languages and cultural practices were forbidden. The National Centre for Truth and Reconciliation records 15 children who died while attending the Ermineskin institution, however, Maskwacis began searching for unmarked graves last autumn using ground-penetrating radar after the unmarked graves of hundreds of Indigenous children were discovered across the country starting in spring 2021. Maskwacis has not yet released the findings of its search.
Flora wears a white T-shirt that says: <Ermineskin Indian school, Hobbema, I survived…!!> She is among those who survived to tell the tale of the hell she lived through.>>
