Sign on to the INIC Statement on Boarding Schools

The Interfaith Network for Indigenous Communities (INIC), an ad-hoc committee that FAN facilitates, has issued this statement in response to the tragic discoveries of mass graves at boarding schools in Canada. It includes pledges of action steps we all can take, especially if we are aligned with Christian faith communities, to uncover our faith traditions’ complicity with the cultural genocide experienced in boarding schools.

As individuals who sign, we will keep you informed of the steps that will be taken along the way, both regionally and nationally, to carry out these commitments. As faith communities that sign, we will add your community to a list shared with the National Native American Boarding School Healing Coalition as part of our Pacific Northwest commitment as well as Secretary of the Interior Deb Haaland and others as the need arises.
