This week, animated videos on Instagram: The abuses of Canada's Indian Residential Schools

Jun 21, 2016
On the Open Society Foundation's Instagram feed this week, photographer Daniella Zalcman shares animated videos of her collage photography exploring the abuses of Canada's Indian residential Schools through portraits, and photographs of the important places and cultural symbols, of members of the First Nations tribes.

The U.S. and Canadian governments began to try to control First Nations culture by criminalizing dances, ceremonies, spirituality, and language. Residential schools were an extension of that attempt to diminish and whitewash First Nations identity that continued until nearly the close of the 20th century.
