This thesis uses internal colonialism to explore residential schools in Canada for First Nations children. It includes how residential schools came into existence, what occurred at residential schools, the legacy of residential schools, and possible ways of healing from them. This is a library thesis primarily using secondary sources with First Nations peoples’ insights. Residential schools were a source of great pain for First Nations peoples and their legacy lives on in First Nations communities. Information on the schools must be made common knowledge for everyone in society in order to have support and healing from the trauma they created.
