Former residential school site in Quebec symbol of ‘resilience and peaceful resistance’

Site hosts an annual music festival that brings people together. 

It’s been 50 years since the Sept-Îles Indian Residential School closed its doors.

The school, also known as Notre-Dame, operated from 1952 to 1967, took in children from eastern Quebec including the Innu community of Mani-utenam.

The site where it was located is now used for a popular annual music festival.

But with the remains of missing children being either searched for or discovered at former schools across the country, some are wondering if any secrets might be lurking underground.
