But when the Canadian government introduced the Indian Act in 1876 and created residential schools, Indigenous people were barred from practicing their religion and culture, leaving a gap in these oral stories. Southwestern Ontario Hubs journalist Mary Baxter and field producer Jeyan Jeganathan take a look at how audio recordings from 80 years ago are giving voices back to those who were silenced for decades.
