“As an organization that centres on social justice, we feel it is critical to be informed on the past and the ongoing consequences of colonialism. We encourage everyone to learn about the history of these lands, and to support resistance here and across Turtle Island.” —NACCA
Today, and always, we stand in solidarity with our Indigenous brothers and sisters. The ongoing historical, personal and intergenerational trauma that Indigenous Nations and People in Canada carry as a result of settler-colonial violence, anti-Indigenous racism and genocide has been with us.
We mourn with Indigenous communities across Canada and in our community. The uncovering of the truth about the horrors of the residential school system where countless Indigenous children were abused, mistreated and killed is with us. May we continue to walk in truth and light.
