In This Together: Fifteen Stories of Truth and Reconciliation
No matter who you are -- Indigenous or non-Indigenous -- the words truth and reconciliation can be hard to swallow.
When you hear the words over and over again, you begin to tire of what can be said, especially when these words seem to be popular in today's politics. These terms, truth and reconciliation, are based upon the actions and words of Canada's Truth and Reconciliation Commission that was put together to deal with Canada's genocidal residential school system and its survivors.
Aside from the work of the actual Truth and Reconciliation Commission, the words truth and reconciliation are now largely used as a tool to get Indigenous and non-Indigenous people to work together.
