Developed in 2001, the goals of Where are the Children? Healing the Legacy of the Residential Schools exhibit are to: acknowledge the experiences of, and the impacts and consequences of Canada’s Residential School System on Aboriginal peoples; to create a public and historical record of this period in Canadian history that could be easily accessed by Canadians; and to promote public awareness, understanding and education of the history and legacy of residential schools. Through documentation, acknowledgment and education, the goal of the exhibition is also to assist in promoting understanding and reconciliation in Canada about residential schools.
The exhibition consists of 118 framed archival photographs, text panels, maps, original classroom textbooks and historical government papers selected from nine public and church archives, and depicts the history and legacy of Canada’s Residential School System. Where are the Children? spans over 125 years and contains photographs and documents from the 1880s to present day.
Collection comprises photographs from the opening of the Legacy of Hope Foundation "Where are the Children?" exhibit at National Archives of Canada in Ottawa, Ontario.
