Fieldwork Investigation

The Fieldwork Investigation at Sacred Heart Cemetery will resume May 29, 2023, until October 31, 2023. The objective of this Investigation is to locate all of the unmarked burials of former Blue Quills Students, as Sacred Heart was the School Cemetery of the Sacred Heart (Blue Quills) Indian Residential School, even after the school moved 7 km west of St. Paul.

The Society will be posting  seasonal worker jobs to be trained by our Geophysicists on how to operate the Ground Penetrating radars, our analytic and  scientific team will be  interpreting the data as we proceed. 

Please watch for the seasonal worker  posting on our website,  applications will only be accepted online, and all  requested  attachments, must be provided. These jobs are only  open to an  identified  group, that will be granted priority in hiring. That group, has been identifed as the  Intergenerational Survivors of Blue Quills Indian Residential School.
