REFLECTIONS ON RECONCILIATION
The 4Rs Youth Movement National Learning Community
Chippewas of Rama First Nation, May 18-21, 2017
By Rehana Tejpar
Righting Relations National Program Facilitator
Last month I had the honour and privilege of being invited to co-facilitate and participate in the 4Rs Youth Movement's National Learning Community, on behalf of Righting Relations. Gathered in the territory of the Chippewas of Rama First Nation along the shores of Lake Couchiching, young Indigenous and non-Indigenous change-makers from across Turtle Island came together around the question:How do we hold meaningful and relevant conversations in our communities that lead us closer to reconciliation?
