On March 29, Reconciliation Canada and Haisla Nation co-hosted the event Our Shared History: An Evening of Haisla Nation History and Dialogue in Kitimat, BC.

The evening gathering featured a presentation from Chief Councillor Ellis Ross, a shared meal and a facilitated dialogue by Reconciliation Canada. The dialogue provided an opportunity for attendees to learn about each other’s backgrounds and begin to think about how reconciliation can take shape. Recognizing that reconciliation is a process and not just a one-time event, the evening gathering aimed to create a strong foundation for future steps towards reconciliation.

An informational booklet, The Meaning of Reconciliation – Haisla Nation History, was produced to accompany the event. The booklet provides an overview of the shared history of Haisla Nation and Canadian society, framed with the goal of beginning the dialogue necessary for reconciliation.

Reconciliation Canada is honoured to have had this opportunity to collaborate with Haisla Nation. We raise our hands to the many people who joined us for the evening gathering, and to the wonderful individuals who made this event possible. We are truly grateful.
