Pathways to Truth and Reconciliation | Indigenomics: Transforming the Economic System with Carol Anne Hilton

In follow-up to our Truth and Reconciliation Summit held in October 2016 at Banff Centre, Indigenous Leadership at Banff Centre hosts a monthly speaker series that invites Bow Valley residents to engage in relevant topics, local discussions, and learn more about Indigenous culture, history, and knowledge. We continue to be impressed by the interest the Bow Valley shows when we bring the classroom into community with this monthly speaker series.
We offer this series in partnership with Banff Canmore Community Foundation and each month a new guest speaker shares on the topic of truth and reconciliation. 

In our second season of the Truth and Reconciliation Speaker Series we will be exploring the “Pathways to Truth and Reconciliation”, asking speakers to share what they have learned about the Action of Reconciliation through their own journey, case studies and successes and barriers encountered along the way. We believe that the path to reconciliation must always be grounded in the truth before we advance to reconciliation and along the path, intent and implementation may differ. These are the stories we have invited our speakers to share with us this season.
