There can be no reconciliation with others if we don't first reconcile with ourselves.

Truth, Forgiveness & Reconciliation

Reconciling the past 465 Years

In 2020, we made Truth, Forgiveness, and Reconciliation ceremonies a natural part of our healing journey. We recognize that while governments are able to speak truth about other atrocities like the Jewish and Aboriginal genocide and even the Canadian – Japanese atrocities of the early 1900s, they are unwilling to speak about the African enslavement experience, the takeover of African lands, and the perpetuation of hatred and discrimination towards people of African descent that continues even today. 

We decided we would address the truth of our experience, forgive the atrocities, and focus on reconciliation internally.

In February and October each year, we host a full day Truth, Forgiveness and Reconciliation ceremony to acknowledge the atrocities of the past 465 years.

Benefits

What will you receive?

We don't come out of 465 years of trauma individually, we do it together!
  • We learn from one another, our elders, and historical experts

  • We moved through a prayerful process and as a group speak aloud our forgiveness of the atrocities. We forgive them and then we forgive ourselves for perpetuating the same harm on each other.

  • We express love for ourselves, and our ways of being.

  • We acknowledge and embrace the part we must now play as peacemakers for the planet.

  • We make a new decision that this must never happen again. Not to us. Not to anyone on the planet.
