Welcome to the Department of History


A Note to Our Communities

In light of the discovery of 751 unmarked graves near the former Marieval Residential School, the Department of History stands in solidarity with and sends its deepest condolences to students and alumni of the Cowessess First Nation on whose Treaty 4 land the former school cemetery resides, to family, friends, and survivors of Marieval, and to all First Nations, Inuit, and Métis/Michif victims of Canada’s colonial past and present. True reconciliation, including fully acknowledging the intergenerational trauma of the residential school system and associated programs of cultural genocide, is only possible if based upon accountability and truth. Accordingly, we will continue to work in solidarity with First Nations University of Canada and all Indigenous and non-Indigenous colleagues in the furtherance of the University of Regina’s decolonization and reconciliation goals.
