A site dedicated to helping educators be better equipped and feel more comfortable teaching students about Indigenous cultures, histories, languages, the importance of treaties, and the legacy of residential schools.
Disclaimer: This site is intended to serve only as one tool, as one entry point into reconciliation. It is a collection of building blocks intended to help us grow personally and professionally. There is no one way to work on reconciliation; it is as unique as the person working toward it. It is not a checklist of things to accomplish. It is a deeply complex process with no definitive end point. To engage further in reconciliation, get to know people in the Indigenous communities surrounding your neighbourhood. Reflect on how you are implicated in history. Work to decolonize yourself. Learn. Read. Raise awareness on Indigenous issues. Reflect some more. Be humble. Reflect again.
