Video Message from Candace Lloyd of Nookoom Learning

On this, the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation, we are provided an opportunity to recognize and commemorate the legacy of residential schools. Candace Lloyd of Nookoom Learning has created a brief informational video to support understanding of the tragic and painful history and ongoing impacts of residential schools.  This video is about creating a space for reconciliation.  Reconciliation is about a mutually respectful relationship between Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples in this country. It’s about awareness of the past and an acknowledgement of the harm that has been inflicted and an atonement for the causes and actions to create a change in behaviour.
