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.
