In Canada June marks National Indigenous History Month. This month is an opportunity to reflect on the important contribution that all Indigenous people have made, and continue to make to our country. It is also an opportunity to reflect on a number of past injustices that Indigenous people have suffered during our history.
In recent years the Truth and Reconciliation Commission Report was released outlining 94 recommendations to help heal the relationship between Indigenous people and Canada. One of the underlying themes in this report is to create a better understanding of the injustices that have happened in the past, and continue to happen to this day.
I had the pleasure to meet an Indigenous man named Bear Standing Tall and he has generously offered to share his extensive Indigenous Cultural Awareness Online Course free of charge during June.
I have taken this course and I would encourage you to do so as well. There is good information contained in this course and also an extensive list of what we can individually do to advance reconciliation in Canada.
As a proud Canadian I believe it is important that we all do what we can to move forward the goals that are outlined in the Truth and Reconciliation Commission Final report. One of the best ways we can do this is to remain well informed about the issues.
