About this event

Theme Statement

Building Respectful Relations

Examining Canadian History from the perspective of Indigenous Peoples. We will learn about Mi’kmaq culture, values and history with presentations on past community life, life after colonization and life now for the Mi’kmaq including their hopes for the future. We will touch on residential school, MMIWG2S, the Act of Assimilation and woven throughout will be songs, stories and poetry. We will ask:

*What happened, particularly here in Atlantic Canada?

*What has the impact been on Indigenous Peoples and Settlers?

*How can individuals and communities of faith pursue spiritual healing and embrace our call to take bold action for justice?

* What can we do to “build respectful relations” as Canada’s Truth and

Reconciliation Commission Report defined reconciliation?
