Truth and Reconciliation – Paths to Understanding

Undoubtedly, the abuse and genocide of Indigenous Peoples is a dark part of Canadian history. In fact, there has been abuse of Indigenous Peoples around the world. Often, we tend to think of Indigenous Peoples as separate from ourselves, while we are all truly the same. Through our connections with Indigenous youth, we allow youth from different backgrounds to speak about stories with one another, an important aspect of truth and reconciliation. Once mutual understandings are created, we can reconcile with one another.
