The event will be live-streamed from the Manido Onji Lodge, Place of Spirit, the Aboriginal Learning Center housed at Rideau High School in Ottawa. Designed in consultation with the students at Rideau, youth workers at Wabano, and several elders from various Aboriginal communities, the Ottawa Carleton District School Board’s Aboriginal Learning Center provides a culturally safe and relevant space for FNMI educational, youth and community programming.

On the heels of the June 2015 Truth and Reconciliation process, this is a critical time for Canadian students to talk about official policies and practises that have affected generations of First Nations communities. It is essential to look at initiatives for healing social wounds and creating a brighter future.

Now is the time to talk about creating positive shifts – bring your class into the conversation!
