For Wednesday’s EDCP 601 meeting (25 November), Associate Dean for Indigenous Education, Jo-ann Archibald, will join us to lead a seminar on the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada‘s summary Report, Honouring the Truth, Reconciling for the Future.
How do we respond to the Call to Action for Education for Reconciliation? The question for us is then how do we ethically, meaningfully and thoughtfully address this Call? The truths of Honouring the Truth, Reconciling for the Future are extremely difficult and the Call extremely important.
