Witness to Murder at Indian Residential School

Irene Favel describes in a CBC interview (July 8, 2008) how she witnessed the murder of a baby by staff at the Muskowekwan Indian Residential School, run by the Roman Catholic Church in Lestock, Saskatchewan.

This segment of the interview is no longer available on the CBC archives.


This murder was part of a larger act of genocide called ‘Canada’s Holocaust‘.

    I remember somewhat of the same experience. I was 9 years old when I witnessed one of my friends being raped and sexually assulted for 2 years. After she had mentioned it the schools blamed her and attempted to “cauterize” vagina. Sealing it, just enough to secrete her bodily fluids. She had no one to help her and was segregated from the rest of us. Sad world we live in.

    I use to work at the residential school there , of course was no longer a residential school but a stabilization centre for troubled youth, anyways … I always had an uncomfortable vibe there. Kids told many stories of what happened there and the things they’ve seen roaming the building at night , would like to see a paranormal thingy happen there I know for sure that place is haunted.
