Project: Truth and Reconciliation

My project is on Truth and Reconciliation. I look at what reconciliation is, why we need to reconcile and how it is happening in our country.

What was the most interesting thing you learned about your topic?

When I met with Elder Crowshoe I learned how First Nation people lost their sense of belonging and culture in our community.

What important lessons have you learned that you want to share with other Canadians?

I have learned about some of the lasting effects and consequences of how we treated Indigenous people in the past.

How would you compare your life today to the lives of those studied in your project?

I am very fortunate to be living in a country where we try to see people as equal and be inclusive. I get to come home every night and be with my family after school and I am free to practice my culture and faith.
