Indian Residential School History and Dialogue Centre
This paper discusses the (amplified) effects of world crises on the human rights of Indigenous peoples. It recognizes the unforeseen effects of COVID-19 on various vulnerable populations, and the ways previous emergencies have affected these populations. It addresses the questions about the process of reconciliation, and the ways in which it may be stalled, and ways that the priorities of reconciliation may need to change in order to continue moving forward.
The series was drafted by Mary Ellen Turpel-Lafond, Aki-kwe, in collaboration with Indigenous leaders and experts in this area.
