Stories – Reconciliation

Reconciliation in the Canadian context refers to restoring relationships between Indigenous and non-Indigenous people and seeking justice from the wrongdoings perpetuated through colonization. Reconciliation includes telling and listening to the truth, and seeking reparations and justice through healing and forgiveness. Stories in this category include personal accounts and projects that contain a goal of moving forward reconciliation within their project objectives. Many of the stories focus on reclaiming knowledge that has been lost or suppressed due to the history of colonization and residential schools, including reconnecting with languages, stories, laws, protocols, traditions and ceremonies as a way of restoring power to nations and individuals.
