I wish to thank and honor all of the survivors of Indian residential schools for their courage and willingness to speak out, by which theworld has learned about the genocide inflicted upon them, their nations, and the land. And may we equally honor and acknowledge the untold tens ofthousands of children who suffered and died in the Christian deathcamps, and who still await recognition - so that their memory may never fade, and their murderers may one day face justice.
