We Are All One

Reconciliation belongs to all of us. In this book, Chief Robert Joseph traces his journey from his childhood surviving residential school to his present-day leadership journey bringing individual hope, collective change, and global transformation.

Before we get to know where we are going, we need to know where we came from. Reconciliation represents a long way forward, but it is a pathway towards our higher humanity, our highest selves, and an understanding that everybody matters. In this moving and inspiring book, Chief Joseph teaches us to transform our relationships with ourselves and each other. As we learn about, honour, and respect the truth of the stories we tell ourselves and each other,

we can also discover how to dismantle the walls of discrimination, hatred, and racism in our society.

Chief Joseph is recognized as one of the leading voices on peacebuilding in our time, with his dedication to reconciliation recognized with multiple honorary degrees and awards. A Hereditary Chief of the Gwawaenuk people and one of the remaining first-language speakers of Kwak’wala, his wisdom is grounded in Indigenous ways of knowing while making space for something bigger, better for all of us.

Our common humanity is what we all share. No matter how long or difficult the path ahead, we are all one.
