Stuart Sparvier speaks to an audience at North Platte Community College’s South Campus Monday afternoon. His presentation, in honor of Indigenous Peoples’ Day, was open to the public as well as college students and employees.

Titled, “Racism in Colonial Canada: An Indigenous Perspective,” much of the presentation focused on the dark legacy of Canada’s residential schools, where thousands of children died, and the subsequent impact the schools had on the families and culture of the native people.

Sparvier is from the Cree/ Saulteaux First Nation and is a tribal member of Cowessess First Nation, a Saulteaux First Nations band of government in southern Saskatchewan, Canada. He delivered the same presentation later in the day at McCook Community College.
