The recent discoveries of missing children and unmarked graves have brought a tragic history to our collective doors. On Monday, July 19 at 8 p.m. Lakehead University will be hosting “When History Hurts: A Community Dialogue” a free, live online event that will continue the conversation about residential schools, the story of Indigenous-Settler relations, and the role each of us can play in truth and reconciliation.

Join Dr. Linda Rodenburg, Director of Community Engagement and Lifelong Learning, in conversation with Chief Ted Williams and Councillor Lorraine McRae from Chippewas of Rama First Nation; Jesse Boiteau, Senior Archivist at the National Centre for Truth and Reconciliation; and Dr. Cynthia Wesley-Esquimaux, Chair on Truth and Reconciliation at Lakehead University.

This discussion is for anyone who wants to begin having these culturally safe conversations.
