Their religion included submission to the priests, and their sacraments. This means confessing to a priest and receiving their sacraments and absolution. This is not taught in the Bible. They also forced them to accept their religion with all it's trappings. The government forced their children into residential schools and in many cases, mistreated them and abused them physically, and emotionally.
