Truth & Reconciliation Commission Report Reading Group

Session #6 – May 17, 2018, 6:30-8 pm

The Edward P. Taylor Library & Archives is hosting a series of 7 monthly reading groups to discuss Honouring the Truth, Reconciling for the Future: Summary of the Final Report of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada. The Commission was established in 2008, as a condition of the Indian Residential School Settlement, with the dual mandate of gathering the testimony of survivors of the residential school system, and providing a path forward to healing and reconciliation. This reading group will pay particular attention to questions of how cultural producers and art institutions can acknowledge our various roles in the history and present of colonization, how our practices might change as a result.

The AGO library is pleased to be working with  Knowledge Keeper Amy Desjarlais, as well as facilitators Michael White and Jeffrey Kiyoshk Ross for the remaining sessions of this reading group.


For this session, participants should read the Calls to Action section of the report, in advance of the gathering.

The report can be downloaded for free from the TRC website at the following link: http://www.trc.ca/websites/trcinstitution/File/2015/Honouring_the_Truth…

Additional resources can be shared on the group google doc: http://bit.ly/TRCreadingAGO
