Reconciliation is about helping Indigenous people become themselves again as they reclaim their language, their culture, their community, their whole selves. It’s also very much about land and resources. It’s also about acknowledging and believing Indigenous people as they share their Truths. It’s also about responsibility and action: it’s about showing up and helping when called. It’s about witnessing, and it’s about speaking up when you know further harm is happening.

Mahsi cho and with utmost respect,
