Truth and Reconciliation
September 30, 2021
National Day for Truth and Reconciliation
Indigenous - Jesuit Relations put on by the Jesuit Conference of Canada and the US. The series starts on September 30, National Truth and Reconciliation Day in Canada. There will be four sessions, approximately every two months.
This is an exploration, and does not pretend to be comprehensive in any way. The first session, on Sept 30, 11:30-3:15 CST, will start with a smudge led by Donna Naughton of Kateri Native Ministry in Ottawa.
Session 1; Unpacking Histories: Reflecting on the relations of Indigenous Peoples and Jesuits in what we currently call the U.S. and Canada
Unpacking Histories: Reflecting on the relations of Indigenous Peoples and Jesuits in what we currently call the U.S. and Canada will bring together Indigenous leaders and Jesuit partners as we reflect on the complex history between Jesuits and and Indigenous Peoples. There is no one version of this history that is full of brokenness and beauty, so we will look at many angles.
