The Face of Reconciliation.
KUC’s next Wéytk Wednesday is January 20, 2016 when we will be honoured to have a presentation from one of Canada’s foremost Native authors and storytellers, Richard Wagamese. Among his many accomplishments Richard is the most recent recipient of the Matt Cohen Award “In Celebration of a Writing Life”.
Mr. Wagamese will be reflecting on what the face of reconciliation looks like now that the Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC) has completed its five year mandate. Reconciliation “is the work of all of us. It’s neighbour to neighbour conversations about the things that separate us and the things that can bring us together. Because residential school not only left indelible scars on the survivors, they left the same scars on Canada,” says Wagamese.
The event, co-hosted by the Aboriginal Education Department of Thompson Rivers University (TRU) and Kamloops United Church will be held at the Irving K. Barber Centre at Thompson Rivers University beginning at 7 pm.
