              The Winston dictionary defines
‘residential school’ as “religious schools established to
assimilate Indigenous children into Euro-Canadian culture” (john 2012). There
used to be a lot of residential schools. People around Canada were forced into residential
schools. “In residential schools about 150,000 First Nations were forced
to attend residential schools, students were discouraged from speaking their
first language or practicing native traditions, and the connection from
children and their parents was written in English” (Chris 2001).

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

           First, about “150,000 first nations
were forced to attend residential schools” (Michael 1994). For example, “First
Nation, Inuit and Métis children were removed from their communities and forced
to attend the schools” (Stefan 2000). The First Nations got scared (Joshua
1986). For example, when the First Nation were forced to attend residential
schools they were very scared because they will not see their parents anymore.
This is why “first nations were forced to attend residential schools and why
they were scared to attend residential schools” (James 1983).

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

            Secondly, “students were discouraged from
speaking their first language or practicing native traditions” (Frank 1976).
For example, if the First Nation were caught speaking their first language,
they would experience severe punishment. The students got scared to speak their
first language. For example, once the students stopped speaking their first language
they started speaking English which made their parents unhappy when they came
back home. “This is why students were discouraged from speaking their first
language” (Frank 1976).

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

           Lastly, the connection from children to
their parents was written in English. Which many parents couldn’t read. For
example, if a parent wanted to talk to their sons or daughters, their sons
could only reply by speaking or writing English. Students forgot to speak their
first language in which they can’t speak with their parents or understand what
their parents are trying to say. For example, if you forgot how to speak your
first language you can’t understand or communicate with your parents. This is
why the correspondence from children were written in English. This is why the
connection from children to their parents was written in English.

 

 

            In conclusion, this is why about
150,000 first nations were forced to attend residential schools,  students were discouraged from speaking their
first language or practicing native traditions , the correspondence children
was written in English.
