Exploring Reconciliation - In-House

#1: Doctrine of Discovery: What is it? And is a 15th Century document still relevant today?

In our first hour we will be watching the video Doctrine of Discovery: Stolen Lands, Strong Hearts. This film is produced by the Anglican Church of Canada as an educational resource in response to the TRC’s Calls to Action. After the video we will share our experiences and respond to questions from participants.

#2: Land, Treaties and Relationships

We will begin by exploring the idea of “Treaty” through Amiee Craft’s book Treaty Words: For As Long As the Rivers Flow (published March 2021). We will then review the recently published book To Share, Not Surrender: Indigenous and Settler Visions of Treaty Making in the Colonies of Vancouver Island and British Columbia published in August 2022. There will be opportunities for questions.

#3: Reconciliation: What is it? What can we do?

In this session we will explore how people can think about Reconciliation in different ways and explore our paths on this journey of Reconciliation. This conversation will be done with reference to two recent books, Pathways of Reconciliation, edited by Aimée Craft and Paulette Regan, and True Reconciliation by Jody WilsonRaybould

#4: Reconciliation as a Learning Opportunity

Some see Reconciliation as difficult and challenging. There is another possibility -- seeing it as a journey of Discovery. We will explore new ways of seeing and growing through storytelling with Harold Johnson’s final book, Power of Story, Truth and Trickster and New Fiction, and Tomson Highway’s CBC Massey Lectures, Laughing with the Trickster.

Kerry Baisley, a member of the Metis Nation of British Columbia, is a Missioner for Indigenous Justice at the Anglican Church Diocese of New Westminster
