Hear and learn from Indigenous leaders as they reflect on the Calls to Action and the meaning of National Day for Truth and Reconciliation.

from the Yellowhead Institute:
ON THE EVE of Canada’s second National Day for Truth and Reconciliation, the Yellowhead Institute is hosting an important conversation on the Calls to Action.
An esteemed panel of Indigenous leaders – Cindy Blackstock, Kisha Supernant, Sheila Cote-Meek, Ginger Gosnell-Meyers, Kunuk Inutiq, Janet Smylie, and Scott Franks – will discuss the importance of the ‘Legacy’ Calls to Action (1-42), the injustice of their incompletion, and the barriers to their completion. The discussion will be hosted by Dr. Eva Jewell and Dr. Ian Mosby, who lead the research for Yellowhead’s annual Calls To Action Accountability: A Status Update on Reconciliation analysis.
With this event, we hope to create an open and honest space to illuminate the reality of Indigenous experience in this country, as well as reflect on the nature of the September 30 holiday, when so many of the impactful Calls to Action remain incomplete.
