This is a time for Canadians to recognize and commemorate the ongoing and tragic legacy of residential schools. Reconciliation is the process of healing relationships between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Canadians, which requires public truth sharing, apology and commemoration that acknowledges and redresses past harms. Building meaningful partnerships with Indigenous communities, including Indigenous worldviews in our everyday actions, and recognizing Indigenous sovereignty are some of the ways we can commit to this ongoing process.
On this day of reflection we invite you to view these films in our Library –
