Lecture Topic
The Truth and Reconciliation Commission offered Canada 94 Calls to Action as a roadmap towards true reconciliation. Many of these recommendations centred upon education as a means of creating empathy, understanding and of righting historical wrongs. Today educators across the country, at all levels, are exploring ways to building in Indigenous histories, perspectives and experiences in a way that moves beyond tokenism into authentic learning that empowers learners to create change. This session will focus on Treaties and Treaty Relationships as a means of working towards repairing the wreckage left behind by the broken relationships that we have all inherited as Canadians.
