A Learning Journey for Settler Canadians
It is time for us to “Step Up” and accept our responsibility for creating new relationships with Indigenous Peoples and Nations. A Learning Journey for Settler Canadians.
What Our Students Have to Say
The course provided the true history of the Colonization of First Nations people by the British, as well as interactive and powerful exercises. It equipped me with the knowledge and experiential processes to examine my hidden biases and incorrect assumptions. It also empowered me to engage in conversations and initiatives to be a participating Treaty person advancing Truth & Reconciliation within my small sphere of influence.
There is so much that “we”/settlers need to do before we can actually be ready to engage in something as significant as reconciling.
Truth and Reconciliation means so much more to me now. I realize and admit I have a much larger role to play in the entire matter. We all do. I understand that almost every benefit I have in my life came at a great cost to the Indigenous peoples of Canada, and that there were many uncomfortable truths that were hidden throughout history on the part of settlers.
I do not think Reconciliation can take place until we learn these truths, accept them as our history and then take action in positive, thoughtful and respectful ways.
