UBC GPR work at Kuper IRS Featured in CBC Podcast

October 31, 2022

UBC has been assisting Penlakut Tribe in its search for children missing from the Kuper Island Industrial School since 2014. This work has been lead by Andrew Martindale and includes Eric Simons and Alison Wylie. On August 2, 2021, Penelakut hosted the Spune'luxutth' Sulxwe'en Memorial Walk in memory of lost children at Kuper Island Industrial School and all other residential school institutions across Canada, at which this work was noted.

Duncan McCue's podcast, "Kuper Island" explores this institution and its history. Focusing on the experiences of Tony and James Charlie and the death of Richard Thomas, McCue's podcast is an in-depth exploration of this traumatic place, its history, and the resilience of those who lived through it. Read Raymond Tony Charlie's memoir, "In the Shadow of the Red Brick Building". Watch the documentary, "Return to the Healing Circle".
