In honour of the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation, WAG-Qaumajuq in partnership with the National Centre for Truth and Reconciliation, will be hosting a day of special programming.
Join us for a National Centre for Truth and Reconciliation one hour national broadcast, followed by the launch of Lessons in Legitimacy: Colonialism, Capitalism, and the Rise of State Schooling in British Columbia with Dr. Sean Carleton, and take part in a public discussion on what you need to know about the history and legacy of Indian Residential Schools.
Open to the public. Refreshments available.
General admission fees will be donated to the National Centre for Truth and Reconciliation, reflective of our ongoing efforts to respond to the TRC Calls to Action.
Self-identifying Indigenous peoples are always welcome, free of charge.
