. 751 unmarked graves is ‘a wake up call’ « JO LEE MAGAZINE

INDIAN COUNTRY TODAY – Cowessess First Nation in Saskatchewan says it discovered 751 unmarked graves at the site of the former Marieval Indian Residential School in a press conference Thursday. The discovery follows last month’s report of 215 graves at another school. They are currently treating the area as a “crime scene,” Cowessess Chief Cadmus Delorme said. The graves were found using ground-penetrating radar which resulted in 751 “hits,″ indicating that at least 600 bodies were buried in the area, Delorme said. The radar operators said their results could have a margin of error of 10 percent.
