United Church “Reconciliation: What Does It Mean to Us?” Workshop

This workshop was created by the United Church Committee on Indigenous Justice and Residential Schools for use by United Church Faith Communities. The workshop aims to respond to the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s question for all Canadians: “What does reconciliation mean to us?”  This workshop is intended for people who already have a basic understanding of the United Church’s historic colonial relationship with the Indigenous peoples of Turtle Island, especially with regard to Indian residential schools. It’s for people who understand how the schools reflected and supported an overarching policy of assimilation, and led to extensive cultural, emotional, physical and sexual abuses and multi-generational trauma for students, their families and communities. The aim of the workshop is to take what participants already know about these issues, and discuss how to move forward in reconciliation and healing.
