By Jason Horowitz and Ian Austen in Maskwacis 1 POPE FRANCISoffered a sweeping apology directly to Indigenous people on their land in Canada on Monday, fulfilling a critical demand of many of the survivors of church-run residential schools that became gruesome centers of abuse, forced assimilation, cultural devastation, and death for over a century. 2 “I humbly beg forgiveness for the evil committed by so many Christians against the Indigenous peoples,” Francis said to a crowd made up largely of Indigenous people, some wearing traditional Wearing a traditional headdress, Pope Francis (left) met with Indigenous people for a silent prayer at the Mask wacis Cemetery. | Photo: Picture Alliance clothing and headdresses, in Alberta, near the site of a former residential school. The pope delivered his message in a powwow circle, a covered ring surrounding an open space used for traditional dancing and drumming circles. Around it were tipis, campfires, and booths labeled “Mental Health and Cultural Support.” | Photo: Getty Images 3 Francis added that his remarks were intended for “every Native community and person” and said that a feeling of “shame” had lingered since he apologized to representatives of Indigenous people in April at the Vatican. Before his speech, Francis visited a cemetery where local Indigenous people believe children were buried in unmarked graves. 4 He said he was “deeply sorry” – a remark that triggered applause and approving shouts – for the ways in which “many Christians supported the colonizing mentality of the powers that oppressed the Indigenous peoples.” “I am sorry,” he continued. “I ask forgiveness, in particular, for the ways in which many members of the church and of religious communities cooperated, not least through their indifference, in projects of cultural destruction and forced assimilation promoted by the governments of that time, which culminated in the system of residential schools.” 5 The pope’s six-day visit to Canada, which will include a visit Tuesday to Lac Ste. Anne, a pilgrimage site that is sacred to many Indigenous people, and meetings with Indigenous and church representatives in Quebec City and the Arctic city of Iqaluit, came after years of pleas from Indigenous leaders and leading politicians for a Vatican apology for the abusive schools.
