- Contributor: Truth and Reconciliation Commission of CanadaDate:Created2015Summary:
Canada's residential schools: reconciliation documents the complexities, challenges, and possibilities of reconciliation by presenting the findings of public testimonies from residential school survivors and others who participated in the TRC's national events and community hearings. For many Aboriginal people, reconciliation is foremost about healing families and communities, and revitalizing Indigenous cultures, languages, spirituality, laws, and governance systems. For governments, building a respectful relationship involves dismantling a centuries-old political and bureaucratic culture in which, all too often, policies and programs are still based on failed notions of assimilation. The TRC's calls to action identify the concrete steps that must be taken to ensure that our children and grandchildren can live together in dignity, peace, and prosperity on these lands we now share.Contents:
