National Day for Truth & Reconciliation
September 30th presents an opportunity to amplify Indigenous voices and commit to continuous learning and unlearning. The National Day for Truth & Reconciliation allows Canadians to come together and recognize the lasting legacy and impacts of colonialism, the intergenerational effects of residential schools, and the ongoing systemic racism facing Indigenous communities within our listening area and Canada as a whole.
JOY Radio recently talked to Brenda Gunn, Associate Professor Robson Hall Faculty of Law. She graciously shared her time to answer some of our questions so we can better build meaningful, respectful relationships with Indigenous Peoples.
As a proud Metis woman Brenda continues to combine her academic research with her activism pushing for greater recognition of Indigenous peoples’ inherent rights as determined by Indigenous peoples’ own legal traditions.
