Listening to Indigenous Voices

A new educational resource was launched in 2021. Listening to Indigenous Voices: A Dialogue Guide on Justice and Right Relations, edited by Mark Hathaway, Victoria Blanco, Jayce Chiblow, and Anne-Marie Jackson is a collection of writings and beautiful artwork by Indigenous creators from across Turtle Island who generously shared their work. Authors include Arthur Manuel, Beverly Jacobs, Lee Maracle, Niigaanwewidam James Sinclair, Sylvia McAdam Saysewahum, John Borrows, and Robin Wall Kimmerer, along with works from a variety of Indigenous artists including Christi Belcourt and Kent Monkman. The guide takes one on a journey to engage in dialogue with others, grow and change through stories and powerful words from knowledge keepers. The use of the guide may also be relevant in secondary and post-secondary educational settings.

Together, Canadians must do more than just talk about reconciliation; we must learn how to practise reconciliation in our everyday lives–
within ourselves and our families, and in our communities, governments, places of worship, schools, and workplaces.
To do so constructively, Canadians must remain committed to the ongoing work of establishing and maintaining respectful relationships.”
—The Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada (Final Report, Volume I)
