Refurbing a Mac Classic II. This is not a fast computer.

Going to replace the ~30 year old SCSI hard-drive with a BlueSCSI micro-sd thing. So I'm backing up the existing 40 MB drive. I'm about 90 minutes in, and it's 12% done ...

A news release from Federation of Indigenous First Nations on Wednesday, June 23rd, said that the Cowessess Nation have found hundreds of unmarked graves at the site of the former Marieval Indian Residential School in Saskatchewan. (The number is expected to be three times higher than the 215 found recently at the Kamloops Residential school.)

Marieval was created by the Roman Catholic Church and was open for nearly a century, from 1899 until 1997, though it was under Cowessess control from, if I recall correctly, the late 1970s until its closing.

Robert Kakakaway survived Marieval and wrote a memoir: amazon.ca/dp/B08HTM7VZJ

I request that folk share this news and have conversations about it, and work to learn more about the "Indian Wars," which never really ended.

If that 3x estimate is accurate then that will bring the number of indigenous children found in unmarked graves at residential schools in Canda to greater than 1,000 in one month.

The official estimated death toll of the Canadian residential school program is 3,400, with an upper boundary of 6k. That upper boundary would place the fatality rate of Canadian residential schools at more than double the fatality rate of German POW camps for Canadian prisoners during the Second World War.

The purpose of the Canadian residential school program is, today, recognized as an ethnocidal continuation of the Indian Wars, which gives Canada the dubious honour of being the only Western colony-state to acknowledge it took Indigenous children as prisoners of war.
And in fact the tactic of abducting Indigenous children continued long after residential schools closed - from the 60s until the mid-90s, Indigenous children were forced into the adoption system, and from the mid-90s until now mothers have been coerced and tortured in hospitals into giving up their babies.

Hilarious (for now) jingoism coming out of the UK. Govt is encouraging schoolkids to sing a dire nationalistic anthem on "One Britain, One Nation" day, June 25th — forgetting that Scotland's schools break for summer holidays on June 24th
