This series will be a dialogue starting with Elders (Indigenous and non - Indigenous) discussing what reconciliation means to them.  As part of the introductory discussion, the Calls to Action, as they relate to the field of Education will be reviewed.  As the series progresses, the dialogue will bring in local youth to discuss the future of education in a time of reconciliation and how they see the future unfolding for them.   This will be an ongoing discussion on what “Indigenization” and “Reconciliation” means in today’s world and how universities, knowledge holders and their students can work towards the fruition of the TRC’s recommendations.
