More bodies may be found because there are more areas to search on the school grounds, officials said.
Kamloops Indian Residential School was built in 1890, then re-built in 1923 due to a fire and remained open until 1977. In the 1920’s, Native children aged 4-15 years were forcibly taken and prohibited from seeing their families, practicing their languages, cultures, and traditions. Children attending K.I.R.S. experienced extreme isolation and segregation (Province of British Columbia, 2019).
