“Wrongs to Rights”: Exploring how church groups can act on the TRC’s Call to Action No. 48.

The Mennonite Church Canada is committed to responding positively to the Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC) Call to Action No. 48: Adopting and implementing the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (UNDRIP). This commitment prompted the publication of “Wrongs to Rights”, a 164-page, special edition of Intotemak magazine published in 2016 that explores how church groups can act on the Declaration and Call to Action No. 48. With contributions  from a wide array of respected indigenous and settler leaders, thinkers and activists—from TRC chair Murray Sinclair to theologian Walter Brueggemann—“Wrongs to Rights” has real potential for inspiring Christians across the ecumenical spectrum.

Intotemak, which means “my clan” in Ojibway, is a quarterly magazine that seeks to nurture indigenous-settler relationships of respect, kindness and solidarity.
