“Starting now, we all have an opportunity to show leadership, courage and conviction in helping heal the wounds of the past as we make a path towards a more just, fair and more loving country" - Justice Murray Sinclair

Reconciliation Regina

Background

Since the June, 2015 release of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s (TRC) 94 Calls to Action, many local organizations and individuals have been working towards meeting the actions directed. In 2016, Regina City Council unanimously approved a Referral Motion moved by Mayor Fougere to honour, acknowledge, accept responsibility and participate in actions to address the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada 94 Calls to Action.

The City of Regina partnered with the Office of the Treaty Commissioner and many community leaders and organizations to develop a broader community response to the Calls to Action. This led to the creation of Reconciliation Regina, the beginning of our community-led reconciliation journey now comprised of over 85 community organizations (Community Champions) - working towards the fulfillment of the Calls to Action and actions that may not directly respond to the TRC Calls to Action but have still helped increase understanding and respect towards Indigenous peoples and culture in our community.

Today is not just a day to wear a special shirt or have a day off of work or school.

It is a day to reflect on the history of Residential Schools, how far we have come and how much further we need to go.

Please take time to learn the stories of our Indigenous Peoples through books, podcasts casts and social media. Together we can help heal our wonderful friends, neighbors, co-workers

A great resource for a quick check of whose land you are on. Text  1 (907) 312-5085 with your city/region and province/state /country you are in.  It also works with zip codes/postal codes. Helpful if you are wanting to do a land acknowledgment.

Did you know June is recognized as National Aboriginal History Month - NIHM? The initiation for the month to be recognized was started right here in Regina, Saskatchewan by the Regina Aboriginal Professionals Association back in 2007.

And now the month is celebrated all across Canada. It all started right here in Regina, by a small group of First Nations people, just trying to make a difference.

On June 11, 2007 the RAPA board of directors was successful in lobbying the city and provincial govt to recognize June as NAHM.

On June 12, 2007 RAPA had received notice that a member of parliament Jean Crowder-Nanaimo-Cowichan put forth a motion in the House of Commons to have June officially designated throughout Canada.

June 4, 2009 - The House of Commons officially accepts the motion to recognize and celebrate the month. RAPA Board of Directors at that time: Joely BigEagle, Melanie C. Dawn, Cherish Jean-Baptiste, Jay Bird, Lonette Pelletier, Eunice Tanner, Marjorie Lavallee, Trish Watier, Lorne Kequahtooway, Georgina Cyr, and Treena Amyotte.

Take some time this month to learn about Indigenous People and our history, the sacrifices we have made, our contributions to this country and to celebrate our successes.

Did you know?

As a result of policies aimed at "assimilating" Indigenous people -  First Nations, MĂ©tis and Inuit children were separated from their parents to attend residential school for long periods of time, in attempt to "kill the Indian in the child." This prevented the transmission of their language and culture, impacting today's generation. Breaking the hearts of children and their parents.
