Published by the National Centre for Truth and Reconciliation, in collaboration with Canada’s History Society, we are pleased to announce the publication of Truth and Reconciliation Week 2021.
Co-edited by Ry Moran, who is a leading voice and catalyst for reconciliation, this publication explores truth, reconciliation and the promises of reconciliation from the perspective of home.
Home is the people and places we love. It’s relationships and roots. It’s where we are nurtured and where we thrive. Home is, after all, where the heart is. Since the arrival of settlers on the shores of these lands, homes and homelands of Indigenous peoples have been dramatically reconfigured. Residential schools interrupted home life for generations of children.
Through an allegorical graphic novel-style comic, written by Moran, and illustrated by Swampy Cree artist Nickia McIvor, the publication explores what it means to have guests arrive at your doorstep, a home taken away, and how we can still find ways to live well together.
To guide teachers in their own learning and to help bring truth and reconciliation into their classrooms, this publication will be accompanied by supplementary educational resources available in English and French. The magazine, aimed for students in grades 5–12, is offered in print and digital formats in both English and French, and available digitally in Inuktitut.
Sign up to receive your magazines — there are 50 copies per box and orders are limited to a maximum of 300 copies. As a complement, you’ll have access to a free digital educator’s guide which will be made available in early September. Unfortunately, single print copies are not available, however, homeschoolers and others are welcome to register for the digital versions and accompanying resources.
Incomplete registrations are not guaranteed delivery of requested material.
Please note: We are out of print copies. Digital versions only.
