    The Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada recently released their 94 recommendations for reconciliation from the cultural genocide committed from the 1880's to the 1990's by Indian Residential Schools. We are hopeful that with the upcoming elections, government will commit to implementing more than just the one recommendation they've chosen. http://www.bbc.com/news/magazine-33099511 http://www.trc.ca/websites/trcinstitution/index.php?p=890

    There are good and bad things in our society, successes and failures. But there is only one fundamental reality that remains unaddressed. That is the situation of indigenous peoples. This is the single most important issue before us, whether we are recently arrived in Canada or have been here for centuries. This is the prime issue on which we should be judging governments and potential governments. And we have been warned repeatedly...

    Panel: The UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples: Justice, Reconciliation and Hope ================ Introduction: Commissioner WILTON LITTLECHILD Moderator: JENNIFER PRESTON, Canadian Friends Service Committee (Quakers) Panelists: Grand Chief EDWARD JOHN, Hereditary Chief of Tl’aztem First Nation, Executive member First Nations Summit, Member of UN Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues, Honorary Witness ELLEN GABRIEL, Vice President, Kontinónhstats - Mohawk Language Custodians Association David Langtry, Deputy Commissioner, Canadian Human Rights Commission, Honorary Witness PAUL JOFFE, International human rights lawyer The United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples is described as “the most important statement of Indigenous rights ever formulated.” It was adopted in 2007 after 2 decades of negotiations. Canada formally endorsed the Declaration in 2010. In his 2014 Report on Canada, former UN Special Rapporteur James Anaya concluded that the Declaration “provides a common framework within which the issues faced by indigenous peoples … can be addressed.” UN Secretary General BAN KI-MOON has stated that the Declaration “sets out a framework on which States can build or rebuild their relationships with indigenous peoples. … It provides a momentous opportunity for States and indigenous peoples to strengthen their relationships, promote reconciliation and ensure that the past is not repeated.” This panel will explore the UN Declaration as a tool for Reconciliation. Panelists include Indigenous leaders and legal experts in the field of human rights. Presented by the Coalition for the Human Rights of Indigenous Peoples.

    Truth and Reconciliation recommendations possible, if the political will exists: Hébert Inertia has increasingly become the default response of governments to both emerging and enduring challenges. And that begs one question: When did Canada lose the political will to change its ways?

    A study has found rules that required Canadian aboriginals to attend state-funded church schools were responsible for "cultural genocide". The report released on Tuesday found that First Nation children were often physically and sexually abused. "They were stripped of their self-respect and they were stripped of their identity," said Murray Sinclair, one of the study's authors...

    Today, we travel home. A huge thanks to the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada for having us take over the main stage to speak about Breaking Stereotypes to 1000 kids in English with Right To Play - and another 350 kids in French in collaboration with the Canadian Roots Exchange - Échanges Racines Canadiennes. Thank you to the Survivors who made the process of learning the Truth of residential schools what it is. Thank you for your courage and your bravery, your wisdom and your teachings that you shared with us, this country, and the rest of the world. As the TRC works to release their final report, read their findings here: http://www.trc.ca/websites/trcinstitution/index.php?p=893. Take some time to read through some of the information posted on our Facebook and Twitter pages about the past couple of days as well. Now, it is up to us to join Survivors in the process of Reconciliation. This is not an Aboriginal problem, but a Canadian problem that we should all work to solve. As Commissioner Justice Sinclair said: "It is not enough to believe that reconciliation can happen. We must believe that reconciliation SHOULD happen." It is all of our responsibility. Are you ready? Another huge thank you for the support of Right To Play and the Office of the Provincial Advocate for Children and Youth up until now, as well as all the communities and youth across Ontario and the world who have taken the steps with us through this process. You are Feathers of Hope. We have have been on the go for weeks, so now it is time to rest and take care of ourselves. See you soon. #TogetherWeAre FOH Team #squad

    BUFFY SAINTE-MARIE IN CONCERT ============================== 4:00PM - Marion Dewar Plaza, Ottawa City Hall Buffy Sainte-Marie’s bold new album, Power in the Blood, begins where it all started more than 50 years ago, with a contemporary version of “It’s My Way,” the title track of her 1964 debut. Its message, about the road to self-identity and the conviction to be oneself, still resonates with the Cree singer-songwriter, activist, educator, visual artist, and winner of countless awards (Oscar, Juno, and Golden Globe, among them). #TRC2015 #2Reconcile
