Indigenous History Month – Reconciliation

We are in the last week of June, the final week of Indigenous History Month.  This week we are called to focus on Reconciliation.  Reconciliation is a difficult term to define in this situation, and can mean different things to different people.  One thing almost everyone can agree on is that the Reconciliation we need between Indigenous and non-Indigenous people is an active Reconciliation.  It requires action, not just words.  

We invite you today to consider the definition of Reconciliation proposed by Anishnabeg Outreach Centre, by watching the video below and visiting their website by clicking here.

We also invite you to update yourself on what progress has been made since the 94 Calls to Action were released.  Click the button Beyond 94 below to see which Calls have been completed, which are in progress and which still need to be addressed.  You can also click the button Reconciliation in Hamilton Diocese to see what the Church is doing locally to advance Reconciliation.
