Description
"Reconciliation & the Way Forward is a collection of essays and personal reflections that looks at the issues of reconciliation between Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal peoples in Canada. As a follow-up volume to Speaking My Truth: Reflections on Reconciliation and Residential School, this text seeks to reframe debate by proposing a shift of focus onto civil society and those individuals who have made significant contributions to the formal and informal processes of truth and reconciliation. Reconciliation & the Way Forward asks, 'What’s next?'"
