The Truth and Reconciliation Commission has said that “education is the key to reconciliation”. All across Canada, people are responding to the need to address Indigenous history and issues both in and out of the classroom. But education alone is not enough: it must be followed by actions. Come join us at Covenant Chain Link VII on October 14-15, 2016 for the 7th annual Covenant Chain Link Gathering, “Hope for the Future: Education for Reconciliation”. This year, our keynote speaker will be Katsi’tsakwas Ellen Gabriel, who will address the need for action-oriented education initiatives in the reconciliation journey. On Friday evening, a film screening of "Kanehsatake: 270 Years of Resistance" followed by a discussion with the filmmaker Alanis Obomsawin.   On Saturday, five workshops will focus on ways that you can bring reconciliation activities to your communities.
