A Conversation with Sky Dancer about Writing and Righting Our Truth and Place in Canada
Thank you to everyone who joined us on March 25, 2022 for the REDI Indigenous Initiatives Speakers Series. This series continues the important conversation that was started during the October 28, 2021 It Starts With Us: Truth Telling event to commemorate Orange Shirt Day and the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation.
REDI was honored to welcome Louise Bernice Halfe – Sky Dancer, Parliamentary Poet Laureate, who helped us learn about the need for creative and meaningful connections with Indigenous peoples.
What is the Indigenous Initiatives Speakers Series?
The Indigenous Initiatives Speakers Series is an original and important platform to begin, continue and advance the conversation about telling the truth and reconciling for the future. There has never been a more important time to call upon our elders, leaders, scholars, and people to speak about our individual and shared truths and to anchor compassion in reconciling for the future.
