A Conversation about Reconciliation

 
 
 
For National Indigenous Peoples’ Day, Archbishop Albert had a conversation with François Paradis, Knowledge Keeper and Trainer, and Brenda Arakaza, both part of the Returning to Spirit team. François and Brenda both share their rich perspectives on how we ought to go forward, together. Truly, reconciliation cannot happen alone. It is especially important for non-Indigenous Catholics, now more than ever, to have their ears and hearts open and attentive to the Indigenous peoples of Turtle Island, and to take action in the phase of truth and reconciliation. Let us pray for reconciliation, inform our conscience, and reflect especially today on the fundamental importance for each of us to be agents of healing and reconciliation.

*Our archdiocese is located on the lands of Treaty 1, Treaty 3 and Treaty 5: the traditional territories of Anishinaabeg, Cree, Oji-Cree, and Dakota Peoples, and the homeland of the Métis Nation. Let us pray together in thanksgiving for the rich culture and spirituality of Turtle Island’s Aboriginal Peoples. We also pray in a special way, this day, for continued healing and reconciliation, in a spirit of deep respect and love for the Indigenous peoples of Turtle Island.
