Kimberly Murray, a former executive director of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission, will work with Indigenous Peoples to recommend ways to strengthen federal laws and practices to protect and preserve burial sites found at former residential school sites.
More burial sites have been found and Crown-Indigenous Relations Minister Marc Miller says they are expected to be just the “tip of the iceberg.”
Murray says she is ready to hear about challenges communities have faced in their tireless efforts to recover, protect and commemorate those buried at former schools, including how to dismantle colonial laws that are obstructing them.
