How do we begin to heal the relationship between indigenous peoples and other Canadians?
-As a community...Hold a Reconciliation workshop. Have reconciliation themes for book and movie clubs.
-As an individual...Attend community events. Donate to support continual awareness of the path to reconciliation. Share your knowledge with others.
As a teacher...Highlight indigenous contributions to Canada. Integrate indigenous practices such as sharing circles into the classroom. Encourage students to sign up for the virtual campaign "It Matter to Me" Twibbon.
