Persuading the US government to do more for the survivors and their families

Pember’s intention is also to encourage the US government to do more to facilitate healing. First, she contrasts the US to Canada, and notes that Canada has done a much better job of addressing the difficult past of its Indigenous populations: 

Canada, which operated hundreds of Indian residential schools with similar assimilationist agendas, implemented the Indian Residential Schools Settlement Agreement in 2007, in which the government formally apologized to former boarding-school students and paid reparations to survivors. (ll. 120-123)

With this example, Pember encourages the US government to follow Canada’s example and help Native American survivors by offering economic compensation for their suffering.

Moreover, Pember proposes giving more access to data about the period of Native American boarding schools. Towards the end of the article, Pember points out that “the government could make records from the time more easily available to survivors and their families” (ll. 132-133), and she suggests that this could be a helpful step to let survivors confront their past and overcome their trauma.
