Lately we’ve seen a variety of messages that touch on the relationship between Aboriginal people and other Canadians. For instance, Vancouver city council voted unanimously to acknowledge that the city is on unceded Aboriginal territory and, soon after, Canada’s highest court granted a declaration of Aboriginal title over a tract of Crown lands to the Tsilhqot’in Nation of the west central interior of BC.
In the midst of these activities Bright New Day Reconciliation Circles continue to bring Agoriginal and non-Aboriginal people together to engage in dialogue that highlights our shared history and helps dismantle the walls of isolation that so often define our communities. This is fertile ground and it begs us all to revisit the founding of Canada – go back to how it actually began, understand the history there, and find ways to move forward as equals in the way that was first intended.
