Reconciliation will bring together Indigenous and non-Indigenous youth to have meaningful conversations about a better path forward for the relationship between Canadians, First Nations, Inuit, and Metis. The series will be delivered in collaboration with Indigenous partner organizations with a focus on teaching and learning from an Indigenous perspective.
Below you can find archived webinars, and learning resources to start you on your journey to better understand reconciliation.

Introduction to Reconciliation
Moe Clark will awaken students’ awareness of the land we are all living on by helping them form their own personal territorial acknowledgements. Moe will begin with a short introduction and land acknowledgement. She will then move to her spoken-word performance of one of her poems which will be followed by the playing of a short video discussing the significance of Treaty 7.
Speaker: Moe Clark, National Centre for Truth and Reconciliation (NCTR)
Integrating First Nations Perspectives
Allen Sutherland will discuss the spirit and the intent of the numbered-treaties in Canada. Specifically, the spirit they represent and the intent behind them. Through a thoughtfully put-together presentation and open-dialogue session, Allen will walk us through what it means to be Indigenous as well as non-Indigenous in today’s Canadian society.
Speaker: Allen Sutherland, National Centre for Truth and Reconciliation (NCTR)
An in-depth discussion will be led by Martha Peet. This discussion will guide youth participants through a series of subjects Martha has deemed crucial to considering the positive aspects of Reconciliation. Through her experiences as an Inuk in Canada, Martha wields her identity with wisdom to inform the youth participants of the need to consider other people’s perspectives.

As well as contributing to the Virtual Forum Series, Experience Canada’s program partners are also offering additional resources to assist with asynchronous learning.
