Not likely they were killed, more of a chance T.B. or something took them. And then they were treated like garbage by their caretakers.

Dying of disease due to the abhorrent conditions they were forced to live in means they were killed.

They were probably treated like garbage before and ignored while sick, or worse, mistreated and beaten while sick.

This is why I will risk my soul, if I have one, to make sure Jesus is denied. I will see to it that Jesus does not get the worship he wants from evil people, and the evil people go to Hell even if I must take them there.

I will do whatever it takes to not let the evil of all religions forgive and reward people like this.

There has been countless religions before Jesus.  What are the odds the European version of Christianity is correct?
For an all knowledge god nothing seemed to ever be spoken of outside a 300km radius the Middle East.
I find it hilarious that is always "Ancient Mythology" until its their religion and then its not Mythology but Fact !!!

You don't get it. All religions are stupid and evil.

Bottom line: the Abrahamic religion is the most followed religion in the world, all of them - Judaism/Christianity/Islam/Mormon/Rast​afari/Jim Jones/etc. and the Abrahamic god is definitely evil as portrayed as being the world's most successful mass murderer killing ALL life on the planet and not just the sinners, with the representation of Jesus in the Bible (which I do not believe is truly the Jesus that lived) being that Jeffrey Dahmer is forgiven by Jesus and in Heaven - something that Jesus did that is definitely evil.

Yeah, we do this all the time with dogs, but this really stuck out to me since many Pacific northwest tribes used to hunt whales.  I'm not familiar with this particular tribe though.

"During the time of the great sickness, seven Kwakwakaʼwakw men stood on the shores of the Laichwiltach and sang praise to 215 children that were taken by residential school. During that time, our ancestors came in the form of the Killer Whale to carry that message across to the spirit world."

That's kinda beautiful, and it's terribly sad what the Church did and what the Canadian government let happen.

And here there's a horrifying story about a baby thrown into a furnace.  So yes, 'killed' sounds about right.

Also, re: killer whales and whaling- for this tribe killer whales are potentially reincarnated spirits of their ancestors.  The whales they hunted were more likely grey whales, which are also preyed upon by orcas.

They didn't find 215 children's bodies, they ran a ground detecting radar over a cemetery, and found 215 indications of possible bodies.   Basically, what you would expect to find at any cemetery.

There is no cemetery at that residential school. I've been there many times. They were unmarked graves of children who were buried to keep their deaths a secret.

Going out on a limb here, but why not let the people actually impacted speak for themselves?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9OXW3​9​5L2dU&ab_channel=ArchEdmonton

Even if you are indigenous and the root of this anger is the transgressions of European Churches and colonialism and the terrible harm they caused, your statement is condemning the drummers in this video as much as it's condeming the Churches who participated in the atrocities of the residential schools.  Using a tragedy like this to push your own personal anti-religious agenda on folks who don't want or need it seems to be a bit of a dick move.

Of course there was a cemetery.  Children died, the bodies were not shipped back to the parents, and the children were then buried at the school.

I guess the indigenous cemetery about 1/2km away was too inconvenient.
