Truth and Reconciliation Commission

We all live in Indian Country, even if we do not willingly admit this.  Our history is a checkered one with wounds that need healing on all sides.  Part of the healing process for our country is the work of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission.

The Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada meeting for CALGARY

has been postponed.  Please watch for more information when it comes available.

The event, co-hosted with the Aboriginal Friendship Centre of Calgary, will provide an opportunity for residential school Survivors and anyone affected by the schools’ legacy to share with the Commission and Canadians the unique experiences of children who attended the schools.

This is also an opportunity for all Canadians, both Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal, to learn more about and bear witness to the legacy of the residential school system.

For more information:   George D. Calliou, Executive Director, Aboriginal Friendship Centre of Calgary  (403)270-7379 or  gcalliou@afccalgary.org

Health Support Workers will be available on site.

    For anyone interested in native/ non-native relations I would recommend reading “the Inconvenient Indian” by Tom King. It’s an easy but thought provoking read.

      I also strongly recommend reading this book.
