Kuper Island

About the Show

Long after the Kuper Island Residential School was torn down, the survivors remain haunted by what happened there. Investigative journalist Duncan McCue exposes undisclosed police investigations, confronts perpetrators of abuse, and witnesses a community trying to rebuild on top of the old school’s ruins and the unmarked graves of Indigenous children. 

KUPER ISLAND is an eight-part podcast on residential schools for CBC Podcasts.
