Women Warriors – Journey to Reconciliation

10 Practical Steps to Implement Reconciliation

  1. Read the The Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada (TRC) Calls to Action. It will take you 20 minutes to read the entire document and they are easy to understand.
  2. Visit the TRC website and watch their videos.
  3. Access the two free Massive Open Online Courses offered by the University of British Columbia – Reconciliation through Indigenous Education or the University of Alberta – Indigenous Canada.
  4. Support independent Indigenous media. My favorite is Rick Harp’s Media Indigena Also my podcast, Women Warriors. I have no agenda other than the truth and I do my best to show case Indigenous women’s voices in a respectful manner.
  5. Volunteer at Indigenous events. This summer Alberta is hosting the World Indigenous Games in the Edmonton area from July 2nd to the 9th.
  6. Educate your children on residential school. I’ve included a link complied by CBC of 10 books about residential school to read with your kids ranging from ages 4-12.
  7. Support Indigenous artists and businesses. I’ve complied a list for you to view in the show notes.
  8. Donate to Indigenous non-profits like Reconciliation Canada, or local community organizations that support Reconciliation.
  9. Attend live events like the City of Edmonton’s Celebrating Reconciliation Week from May 28th– June 3rd. Or the City of Saskatoon’s 2nd Annual Rock Your Roots Walk for Reconciliation on June 22nd
  10. Join Edmonton’s RISE book club – Reading for Reconciliation.
