Truth and Reconciliation Tour
In the fall of 2017, the Fed is embarking on a journey across BC to speak with youth in and from care about what reconciliation means to them, and how we can include the voices of young people in the conversation about the modern day experiences of Indigenous people in Canada.
Youth ambassadors of Indigenous and non-Indigenous backgrounds will host these conversations in their communities and will document their experience through a video journal, blog posts and input into the project’s final report.
We will be working in partnership with Elders and other experts and knowledge keepers to speak with youth in urban and rural communities, from Indigenous and non-Indigenous backgrounds and the findings of these conversations will be used to create a report that will allow us to amplify the voices of youth participants to be heard by the wider community.
Are you interested in hosting a conversation on this topic? Contact us to learn more about how your community could become a stop on our tour.
This project has been made possible with funding from the Government of Canada through Canada 150 and Indigenous and Northern Affairs Canada. We would also like to thank The Representative for Children and Youth as a partner on this project.
