Students at Montreal's Beurling Academy are on a creative mission to honour the memory of Indigenous children, one moccasin at a time.
The students are learning about how, since the late 19th century, 150,000 First Nations, Inuit and Métis children were removed from their families and forced to attend residential schools.

The workshop was hosted by Rebekah Elkerton. She is Anishinaabe from Chippewas of the Thames First Nation, near London, Ont. KEEP READING
