Remembering the Children

Jan 21, 2009

(Winter 2009)

Prime Minister Stephen Harper has issued an apology to Aboriginal communities expressing sorrow for the ill treatment suffered by many children in Indian Residential Schools. The painful legacy of those schools continues to be manifest in many ways. But the force of healing is also manifest in powerful ways as communities take action to change the trajectory of a painful history to a future of hope. The journey from Truth to Reconciliation is not travelled by "others", of whom we are mere observers - we must all travel that journey together.

This conference was co- sponsored by the Aboriginal and Church leaders "Remembering the Children" Initiative.
