Workshop Block #1: A Deeper Conversation on Truth, Healing, and Reconciliation


(This workshop is an opportunity to continue the conversation from the plenary on healing.)

This workshop will allow for a deeper conversation about how organizations and tribal nations in the United States are addressing trauma and healing. The workshop will begin with a participatory exercise which will then lead the group into a more intimate and facilitated discussion.  Participants will also hear more about Canada’s having released the Final Report of The Truth and Reconciliation Commission in June 2015, which brought with it an opportunity to acknowledge true shared history and influenced change in the country. What can we in the U.S. learn from the decade of healing in Canada?
