Join friends and community members in reading, contemplating, and engaging in the stories, history, and experiences of Canada’s First Nations. Inspired by the Truth and Reconciliation process and the 94 Calls to Action, this program is intended to build community through the shared experience of reading and discussing the same books while contributing to a country-wide process of fostering new and positive relationships with First Nations people.
We are encouraging all Gabriolans to read Medicine Walk by Richard Wagamese. Available in multiple copies at the Gabriola Library and Page’s Bookstore.
Monique Gray Smith (Lakota, Cree, Scottish) and Celestine Aleck (Snuneymuxw) will be present for the Community Conversation. Hosted by Shelagh Rogers, an Honorary Witness for the TRC. See the GAC website for details and updates, and for an Additional Reading list.
