    The Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada (TRC) will hold its closing events in Ottawa between May 31 and June 3, 2015. The TRC was established in 2008 as a part of the Indian Residential School Settlement Agreement in order to inform Canadians about the history and legacy of such schools. For more than 130 years, the institutions were operated by the government and by Canadian churches on the government's behalf. A second portion of the TRC mandate is to inspire a process leading toward reconciliation within Aboriginal families, and between Aboriginal peoples and non-Aboriginal communities, churches, governments -- and Canadians in general. #TRC #TRC2015 #2Reconcile

    CHILDHOOD PAINTING FROM THE ALBERNI INDIAN RESIDENTIAL SCHOOL A story of return and reconciliation. ------------ Museum of History, Gatineau, QC Douglas Cardinal Room June 1, 2015 from 3:30 to 5PM. In the late 1950s and early 1960s children at the Alberni Indian Residential School created brilliantly colourful paintings as part of extra curricular art classes. The paintings detail cultural objects, places of home, relatives, and friends. They were carefully saved by the children's art teacher for almost 50 years. Now these paintings have been returned to the Survivors who created them, and their families. Come and witness the incredible story of the repatriation of these childhood paintings as told by the Survivors themselves, and the role their art has played in both truth telling and reconciliation. Original paintings will be on display at this event and Survivors will be available to speak about their work and experiences. http://www.historymuseum.ca/ #TRC #TRC2015 #2Reconcile

    Growing up, Katherine Nichols went past the Brandon Indian Residential School everyday in her school bus, but she had no idea what it was. After the school was torn down in 2000, and her parents took her to see the ruins, all she knew was that it was a school for aboriginal children. It wasn’t until she took a first-year Native Studies course at university that she learned about the residential school system — Canadian history’s “sad chapter.”...

    Dumont has been working with students at Pleasant Park Public School in Alta Vista to create four murals that depict the four seasons, known in the aboriginal culture as birth seasons. A person had a birth season, rather than a birthday. The works of art, which prominently depict people from different cultures, including the Métis, First Nations and Inuit communities, and feature the students' ideas and creativity, will soon be photographed. Those photos will be mounted outside on the school as a gesture of reconciliation to support residential school survivors and the work being done by the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada...

    For the past six years the Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC) has held events across the country, and thousands of survivors and their families have told horrific stories of the personal and intergenerational impact of the residential schools. You know the story; hopefully you were able to attend one of those events, and hear those stories first hand. As I listened, in Vancouver, in Edmonton, and in other circles, I found myself saying, “Oh Lord, we couldn’t have done that,” only to realize that indeed, we did...

The indigenous participants were all found to also be drug users at some point in their lifetime...

He was busy preparing a dinner of stuffed peppers, “a traditional Ojibwe dish.” Yes, that’s a joke.

    Commissioners and statement gatherers had to rethink their approach to the tribal communities. After months of outreach, healing ceremonies and sharing circles, Wabanaki people began to tell their stories. The TRC has collected 159 statements from Wabanaki survivors, their family members, foster families and employees of the state child welfare system — social workers, judges, lawyers, guardians ad litem. These statements, not yet publicly available, will be archived at Bowdoin College after the TRC’s closing ceremony in June. Then the work of implementing the commission’s recommendations begins. Much of that reconciliation work will be taken on by Maine-Wabanaki REACH...
