CWN Editor's Note: RoseAnne Archibald, the national chief of the Assembly of First Nations in Canada, met with Prince Charles and asked “for an apology from his mother the Queen, the head of the Anglican church, for whatever happened in the institutions of assimilation and genocide.

“I also asked for an apology for the failures of the Crown in that relationship that we have with them, in our treaty relationship with them,” she added.

Pope Francis, who recently apologized for the “deplorable conduct” of members of the Church in the Canadian Indian residential school system, is scheduled to visit Canada in July.
