Program Description

Three generations of non-Indigenous women invite you to join in a conversation and exploration of our position within the Truth and Reconciliation process. What might the process of ‘decolonization’ look like for non-Indigenous people? What does it mean to be an ally? Come and share your experience with the group and be prepared to learn from one another. All perspectives, voices, and backgrounds are welcome!
