At the intersection of Canada’s history and future, this webinar will examine the lasting impact of residential schools and misguided inequitable legislations while emphasizing the importance of moving forward towards reconciliation.
Earlier this year the federal government announced the decision to recognize September 30th as a national statutory holiday – Orange Shirt Day. This is a day to commemorate the lasting effects of residential schools and reflect on the legacy they left behind. Reconciliation is the essential next step for Canada to move forward by rebuilding and revitalizing the relationship between Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples.
To honour Orange Shirt Day, Brad Spence from ECO Canada presents “Looking Back, Moving Forward: Taking Action Towards Reconciliation.” Brad Spence is a proud member of the Saddle Lake First Nation and is proud to be a Traditional Knowledge Keeper for his community. He will explore the true meaning of reconciliation, the purpose of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission, and the actions we are all called to take, both within our organizations and as individuals.
