It has been five years since the Truth and Reconciliation Commission issued its groundbreaking report, one that promised sweeping changes.

But is that what we are seeing? After Wet’su’weten, Black Lives Matter, the Mi’kmaq fisheries dispute, and, delays on the implementation on a national action plan to help stop the genocide of our Murdered and Missing Indigenous Women and Girls, where do we find hope?

Join Selkirk College in welcoming Tanya Talaga for her talk Rights Before Reconciliation.

  • March 4, 2021 from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m.
  •  Hosted virtually, broadcast from the Gathering Place

This Selkirk College event is part of the Truth and Justice Speaker Series co-presented with Indigenous Services, the Mir Centre for Peace, the Capitol Theatre and School District 8. This is one event among several scheduled the week of March 2 for an Indigenous Cultural Celebration.
