Connexions Calendar

Conversations Toward Reconciliation

February 09, 2018 to March 09, 2018

The release of the Truth and Reconciliation Committee report (2015) and its 94 recommendations across all sectors have generated increased interest in the area of Indigenous and non-Indigenous relations in Canada. This series will identify an Indigenous framework incorporating values and principles that surround an Indigenous philosophy of balancing the mind, body and spirit. From here, participants will be invited to consider the points of intersection for engagement within this framework. A critical component of this dialogue will be exploring existing tensions and disrupting notions that good intentions alone do not equate to good things for all people.
