U of S researchers help to preserve last remaining Sask. residential school

University of Saskatchewan researchers in archaeology and anthropology are assisting the Muskowekwan First Nation and the National Centre for Truth and Reconciliation to preserve the last remaining residential school in Saskatchewan.

U of S faculty members are joining researchers from the University of Alberta at the Muskowekwan Residential School to examine a number of sites that are believed to be the final resting place for several Indigenous children who attended the school, according to a recent story by CTV.

The Muskowekwan First Nation hopes to see the building turned into a museum. Band councillor Cynthia Desjarlais told CTV Regina that the goal for now is to put up a memorial for the unidentified children believed to have been buried on the property.
