We are in unique times. Many are asking what our role is in reconciliation. This engaging, thought-provoking session will provide examples and insights while exploring Canada’s history through an Indigenous lens. We will look at the Four Blankets of Resilience developed by Monique through working in Indigenous communities for over 25 years. This leads to a deeper understanding of why respect, relationships, and resilience are critical elements of reconciliation.
