By Brittany Hobson THE CANADIAN PRESS WINNIPEG- On a clear summer day in August, Rebecca Blake found herself standing in a cemetery outside Edmonton searching for the graves of Inuvialuit who died in the South during a tuberculosis epidemic. In a corner of a cemetery in St. Albert, Alta., under some trees she found a section dedicated to Indigenous peoples and a monument holding the names of 98 people buried there from Northern Canada. As Blake looked around the area she discovered a grim reality. “I realized there was not enough room for 98 people. Then I learned they were one upon the other, upon the other,” she said. At a different cemetery, Blake learned a woman who was taken from her community to attend a tuberculosis hospital was buried
