Informative and chilling!
So illuminating. While it is very disheartening to see what has come before (so many aspects of oppression of Indigenous Peoples in the Indian Act) listening to the Indigenous leaders and scholars discuss what is needed to for healing and to make things right gives me such hope! We need to listen and trust them.
