A Voice for those Silenced Innocents... A Stark Truth Expose' April 29 2006
By Readalot - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I've just finished reading "Love and Death in the Valley" by Kevin Annett, and it is amazing how this man stood up against the establishment, church & state to expose the horrors he uncovered... The residential schools of Canada were used to steal the land & its resources from the Native people, and part of that goal was accomplished by removing forcibly the children from their homes and forcing them into these government/church "schools" where they were preyed upon by pedophiles, raped, tortured and murdered, some by exposure to TB and others by horrendous medical experimentation, sterilization, etc. Canada wasn't the only place these residential schools were located. They were here in the USA too.

I found it especially interesting that the three-fold entity (church-state & commercial) included the company we know as Weyerhaeuser in the equasion.

There was a rude awakening as to the truths of church-state-company agenda, and the absolute disregard of human life and dignity. Power, greed, manipulation, corruption, at its worst!!!

This is no "conspiracy theory"... this is the real history revealed, and done so in a most excellent way, allowing the voices of the silenced innocents to be heard...FINALLY!!!

I recommend this book to anyone who wants to know the truth about the residential schools forced upon our Indiginous people and the motivation behind it all.

The other book he's written, is "Hidden From History: The Canadian Holocaust" where he becomes a voice of the Native people to tell their stories. It is filled with first-hand testimonials!

In case anyone is interested, they can get it at [...]

Kevin Annett is a very brave soul. A man of truth and integrity. He has dedicated his life to expose this horrendous, henious activity.. which may still be going on in parts of this world.

A Shocking Story!!! A MUST READ!!! May 5 2006
By Olivia Lorenz - Published on Amazon.com
I've read a lot of books that have lingered in my memory, but I will never forget this one! I had heard rumors of things that had happened in the Canadian Indian Residential Schools, but never had I heard all of the horrors that were revealed in this book. I recommend this book be widely read, and commend this man for exposing the decades of crimes against the Native people of Canada.

My statements fall flat in comparrison to the revelations of this book. The church and state and corporation in kahoots to take away the land and its resources, at any price. The suffering of the innocent people is beyond description! It is hideous what has been done to them.

I can only imagine the horrors of the families ripped apart by these institutions, children forced into these death-ridden torture chambers in guise of educational instituitons. Parents stripped of their parental rights, while their children were put into the hands of known pedophiles, abused, tortured with medical experiments like lab rats, and a 50% death rate, all intentional genocide.

These crimes have been hidden from sight and were basically unknown to most people until this man took it upon himself to stand up to the 'establishment' and hold them accountable for their horrible deeds.

This is a book that needs to be put into every library, for everyone to read and remember, so that this can never happen again!

Love and Death Hidden March 8 2006
By F. Walter - Published on Amazon.com
I have read this book and passed it on to my son to read, then bought another for myself. I could not believe how much truth is just swept under the rug, and someone as brave as Kevin, to bring out the truth, can be shunned by government and churches alike. This tells me you can't even have faith in all churches. Their day of reckoning is coming. Shame on Canada.

A Monumental Achievement March 22 2007
By Betty M. Richeson - Published on Amazon.com
I had known of the terrible abuses practised since 1880 among the West Coast Indian schools operated in Canada by the three major church organizations. Never until this incredible book came into my hands had I gauged the enormity of these crimes and the microcosm they represent of the centuries of abuse that we of European extraction have perpetrated on the native peoples of North America.

In this startling book, Kevin Annett describes how, as an ordained minister of the United Church of Canada in a small Vancouver Island community, he discovered almost by accident evidence of the history of incredible abuse over more than a century in the "religious schools" run by the churches and supposedly created to educate coastal Indian children.

He proceeds to lay bare what he calls "the Canadian holocaust," which in a larger sense indicts the 'pale invaders' of the Western Hemisphere. In so doing, he exposed himself to an unbelievable inquisition and persecution at the hands of his employer the United Church. Desperate to cover up his revelations, that Church through its immense power succeeded in stripping him not only of his livelihood and a promising career, but of his family and his reputation.

On more than one occasion physically threatened and attacked by anonymous thugs, he was denied recourse by the courts while being subjected to a farcical kangaroo court devised by the United Church of Canada.

He is afforded little recognition much less help by the Canadian government which, extending back to the 19th Century, was itself complicit in the abominable history of the Church's abuses (and those of the Anglican and Roman Catholic Church "schools" as well).

And then, unbelievably, after he has been unfrocked, expelled from the Church and made the victim of a campaign of falsehood, he is blocked in his attempt to formalize his voluminous factual findings in a thesis toward a Ph. D. degree at his Alma Mater, the University of British Columbia. (He had previously earned a degree in anthropology, by his own choice declined completion of his law degree after two and a half years of study, but had gone on to earn Master's degrees in both History and Theology).

Although having completed all of the course work toward the Ph. D. degree with a grade-point average of 88%, he was mysteriously denied permission to present his thesis toward that degree. (The University, one of the foremost in Canada, was and is substantially endowed by MacMillan Bloedel, the giant forestry company that he had alleged to have figured prominently in the Church's illegal selling of Indian land!)

Today, after 14 years of struggle against enormous adversaries, Kevin Annett has attained a degree of legitimacy in his quest for justice. He has written two books, and written, directed and produced a documentary film, "Unrepentant," which won the award in the "Best Director" category at the New York Independent Film Festival in 2006, and recently premiered in Los Angeles. He has the support of two radio stations in Vancouver and Montreal, he is pastor of a native and white congregation in Vancouver's skid row district, and he has founded an organization under the auspices of the United Nations to document genocide and other abuses.

Never in history, perhaps, has a single man stood up alone against such formidable adversaries, because of his insistence on the truth and justice for native people. And so, Kevin Annett's greatest achievement is not only that he engaged such colossal forces, but that he lays bare the guilt that he insists we must all bear, as did the German people following the Nazi pogroms.

We are equally guilty, Kevin Annett insists, all of us who - as part of the European invasion of the Western World - strove (almost succeeding) to annihilate most of this Hemisphere's 100 million people!

As Martin Luther King claimed on behalf of 22 million black Americans, only when we collectively turn from denial and acknowledge our guilt, can true peace and freedom be declared for this country, this continent, and this hemisphere.

Kevin Annett is worthy of the legacy of Martin Luther King.

He is deserving not merely of a book award, but of The Nobel Peace Prize.
