The goal of this presentation is to empower individuals with baseline knowledge on the “why” behind Canada’s National Day for Truth and Reconciliation, specifically related to the Truth and Reconciliation Commissions Calls to Action, to assist in the reflection and learning that this day is meant for.
Participants will leave this session with an assured sense of why September 30th is Canada’s National Statutory Day for Truth and Reconciliation. They will also receive information on updated terminology and a better understanding of fundamental issues such as systemic racism and intergenerational trauma, which may have blocked them from participating in past conversations on Indigenous topics. Participants will learn that true reconciliation involves meaningful dialogue from all Canadians, how valuable it is for them to have a voice through knowledge empowerment, and most importantly, how their voices are needed now more than ever.
The United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous People (UNDRIP) is a universal framework of minimum standards for the survival, dignity, and well-being of the Indigenous Peoples of the world and it elaborates on existing human rights standards and fundamental freedoms as they apply to the specific situation of Indigenous Peoples.
Participants will leave with this session with a high-level exposure to each of UNDRIP’s 46 articles and comprehension of the document as a whole, as well as an overview of the State of the World's Indigenous Peoples reports.
Participants will also have an understanding of the importance of UNDRIP, how Canada and the US have taken action, and what the future holds for UNDRIP, our countries, and the world.

What our attendees have to say...
"I really enjoyed how Bryan laid out what we were going to learn, reiteraated what was just discussed then looped it back to our learning objectives at the end. I also enjoyed the Slido polls as well as listening to his grandmother tell her true story about her childhood experience. That was very emotionally impactful."

"Incredible session. Very powerful. Bryan was extremely knowledgable and motivating to want to be a voice that helps empower and bring much needed change to Canada and the world! Thank you!"
"This was a highly informative and interesting presentation about Indigenous Peoples' recent history (past 100 years or so) in Canada and the United States. I particularly found the detailed definitions of words we hear often, but might not know exactly what these words or terms mean and the historical context behind them, very interesting. The facilitator was sincere, knowledgeable, and engaging."
