Finding Truth & Reconciliation in Canada
Originally aired on October 26
Re-release November 30
Authors and experts in candid, live conversation reflect on the topics that matter most during this unprecedented time. This impactful panel discussion with Indigenous scholars and writers Chief Bev Sellars (Xat’sull), Anne Spice (Tlingit member of Kwanlin Dun First Nation) and Kisha Supernant (Métis/Papaschase/British), will look at the resurgence of Indigenous legal and governance systems intentionally moving away from settler colonial institutions. Panelists will explore, with moderator Gina Starblanket (Cree and Saulteaux), how the law can be harnessed to promote the well-being and self-determination of Indigenous peoples, and the path that lies ahead to finding truth and reconciliation in this country, particularly after a year that has seen the heartbreaking discovery of thousands of unmarked burials at former residential schools. Tune in each day of the Festival to hear new speakers in critical conversation about the topics shaping today’s world.
The topics discussed in this event may be heavy for some. Feel free to step away as needed to take care of yourselves. The event will be recorded and available for 72 hours after airing.
