National Indigenous History Month

The truth is hard. Reconciliation is harder—comes at an opportune time for our country, as we seek to understand how best to implement the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s (TRC) recommendations.

It is a process of dismantling the ongoing colonial relationship that treats Indigenous people as less than human. It is not a matter of benevolence or charity. It is a matter of respect and rights.
