JUST IN: The Department of Interior is launching the Federal Indian Boarding School Initiative, an investigation that will aim to identify past boarding school sites, burial sites and locations, Secretary Haaland announced at the NCAI conference Tuesday.
The Chairman of the Defence and Interior Committee in Parliament, Kennedy Agyapong, has commenced constructing an 80-bed Cardiothoracic Centre at the 37 Military Hospital in Accra.
The U.S. govt will investigate the "inter-generational impact" of Indigenous boarding schools, Interior Sec. Deb Haaland said. For 150+ years, the U.S. forced Indigenous children into the schools to be assimilated, with 80% of them in such schools by 1926, according to Haaland. pic.twitter.com/AW3Mnsc1sZ
