Every June, Canadians celebrate National Indigenous History Month, which is an opportunity to honour the heritage, contributions, and cultures of First Nation, Inuit, and Métis communities across Canada.
The Durham libraries, Durham College, Ontario Tech University, DCSI, OTSU, and the Region of Durham, in partnership with the Rotary Club of Whitby, and OPUC, are launching a collaborative four-part panel discussion series with Indigenous peoples and First Nations from the Durham Region.
Reconciliation, Resilience, Resistance, and Resurgence will focus on actions that support and amplify Indigenous Voices in our community as we move forward with the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s Calls-to-Action. Join us for Part 1 of the discussion and learn how to become an ally to speak out against Anti-Indigenous Racism.
