By Kelly Geraldine Malone STAR BLANKET CREE NATION- A First Nation in Saskatchewan says ground-penetrating radar has discovered more than 2,000 areas of interest and a child’s bone was separately found at the site of one of the longest-running residential schools in the country. Star Blanket Cree Nation Chief Michael Starr said Thursday it shows the harsh truth of what happened within the walls of the Qu’Appelle Indian Residential School. “It was unthinkable. It was profound. It was sad. It was hurtful,” Starr said Thursday. “And it made us very angry what had happened to our young people here.” Areas for the search were selected after testimonials from former students and elders who witnessed or heard stories of what happened at the residential school about 75 km northeast of Regina.
