Chief Michael Starr has previously said the nation is looking for relatives that never came home
Star Blanket Cree Nation is set to make a “major announcement” in connection with ground penetrating radar searches conducted at the site of the former Lebret Indian Industrial School.
Chief Michael Starr will be joined by members of the community Thursday morning at the only remnant of the school that is still standing — a gymnasium in the village of Lebret, Sask., located about 75 kilometres northeast of Regina.
The gymnasium now serves as a gathering centre for the nation’s activities.
Many members of Star Blanket Cree Nation were forced to attend the former residential school, which operated under different names including Qu’appelle, St. Paul’s and Whitecalf, over the more than 100 years that it remained open.
