Piikani Residential School Search

The Piikani First Nation in Southern Alberta has initiated a major project to investigate numerous former residential schools, and other sites on the Nation, for the existence of the unmarked graves of residential school attendees.

It is known that there were 3 residential schools at Piikani, but there could be additional grave sites as well.  It is known that many former residential schools are the sites of unmarked graves.  Therefore, it is critical that Piikani undertake a thorough, thoughtful, and respectful search for our own possible unmarked graves.

The working group will report to Chief and Council and communicate regularly to Nation Members as well as media.  Any found data will be released under the authority of Piikani Nation Chief and Council.
