Abstract

Indigenous survivors and scholars have asserted that the Coqualeetza residential school was an exceptional institution: graduates took up notable public roles, and many of the abuses characteristic of residential schools did not occur there, perhaps because of its staff’s progressive attitudes. Relying on archival and oral history sources, this paper explores how Ts’elxwéyeqw Methodists’ engagements (collaborative labour, lay evangelism, and financial investment) shaped the institution and its more humane ethos.
