The circle game : shadows and substance in the Indian residential school experience in Canada / a report to the Royal Commission on Aboriginal Peoples ; Roland D. Chrisjohn & Sherri L. Young with contributions...: Z1-1991/1-41-85E-PDF

There was some thought, and perhaps there still is some expectation, that the testimony before the Royal Commission on Aboriginal Peoples would provide the "data" to demonstrate the horrors of Indian residential school. But it is no more "data" than it is "sworn testimony," and trying to make it something it is not invites its dismissal. Further, once we accept the specious premise that is up to us to prove what they did was harmful to us, we find ourselves jumping through their hoops. And they have an endless supply of hoops.
