The Canadian Race Relations Foundation, in partnership with the Woodland Cultural Centre, will be providing a virtual workshop on the Truth and Reconciliation Commission, facilitated by culturally-trained Indigenous experts.
This presentation will cover topics including Canada’s Indigenous Policy, the Indian Residential Settlement agreement, and the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (UNDRIP). We will examine the history and policies that led to the creation of the residential schools, their legacies, and why truth and reconciliation is so important.
Don’t miss your opportunity to take part in this discussion diving into the nuances of Canada’s Indigenous Policy and what comes after the 94 Calls to Action. Join us and take this crucial step towards truth and reconciliation with the Woodland Cultural Centre.
The Woodland Cultural Centre was established in October 1972 under the direction of the Association of Iroquois and Allied Indians upon the closure of the Mohawk Institute Residential School. The Centre serves to preserve and promote Indigenous history, art, language and culture.
