In conversation with Indigenous Senators in the Senate of Canada
As part of our Reconciliation Conversation online series, we invited some of the Indigenous Senators in the Senate of Canada to talk to us about their lived experiences, their vision for Reconciliation, and their advice for Indigenous and non-Indigenous young Canadians about the path forward.
An introduction to these 5 amazing Indigenous Senators. They share stories of their upbringing from various communities across Canada, including the challenges and choices they faced as indigenous youth.
The senators discuss their journey to becoming members of the senate and share some of their personal and professional achievements, and current issues they are passionate about tackling.
Truth & Reconciliation
The senators discuss what they feel are the main priorities in the path towards meaningful Reconciliation – both from their positions within the senate, to state, municipal, and local, opportunities and challenges.
Message to Youth
The senators provide messages of hope and guidance to young indigenous and non-ingenious youth as they transition into adulthood.
