On Thursday May 27th of 2021, The Tk’emlúps te Secwépemc First Nation made an announcement that sparked outrage and horror in British Columbia and across the world: 215 children were discovered at the site of a former residential school in Kamloops, B.C.

As an organization that was founded in British Columbia on the traditional, ancestral, and unceded territories of the Musqueam, Squamish, Tsleil-Waututh, and Tsawwassen Nations, the news of such a substantial loss of life and potential has caused us to reflect and listen to our neighbors, our friends, and the Indigenous communities who are once again forced to relive the ongoing traumas of Canada’s dark and recent history.

Foresight extends our deep and heartfelt condolences to the Tk’emlúps te Secwépemc First Nation, and all those who were impacted by the residential schooling system.
