National Day of Truth and Reconciliation

September 30th is now a national day that urges us to take time to learn and reflect on the history of our settler nation, Canada, upon which the Indigenous Nations of Turtle Island have lived for thousands of years.

Here are some links to resources, studies, inspirations and ways to support Indigenous organizations.

Local events: St Marys, Ontario, Stratford, Ontario
