Locals to tune into Truth and Reconciliation event
|Truth and Reconciliation logo.|
Despite what the proverb might say, without help, time does not heal all wounds.
The Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada (TRC) is working to fix the injustices experienced by native people in residential schools.
“Reconciliation is an ongoing individual and collective process, and will require commitment from all those affected including First Nations, Inuit and Métis former Indian Residential School (IRS) students, their families, communities, religious entities, former school employees, government and the people of Canada.”
The TRC holds its event to honor memories of the many families affected by the schools. The program, held in Ottawa, will include survivor experiences, traditional ceremonies, and cultural performances.
The event will be streamed live at SFU’s Goldcorp Centre for the Arts on June 2, at 8 a.m. in the Djavad Mowafaghian Cinema. More information is available here.
