Canada takes action for their mistakes. The past wasn’t a positive one. But now, we citizens of Canada take action to apologize for what we did.
In the past we have mistreated the First Nation. We’ve invaded their territory and took their children to learn the European ways. We’ve put the First Nation children into school where they were fed rotten food and we strictly forbade them to speak their own language and forbade them from own traditions, and from seeing their own parents.
Now, Canada is trying to apologize for what we have done. We’re taking action by having a Truth and Reconciliation week. Sept. 16-Sept.23 is the Truth and Reconciliation week. Division 16 has participated in an event on the 2nd day of Reconciliation week. we’ve attended an All Nations Canoe Gathering. It was an amazing experience. Here’s a member of division 16’s experience.
My experience was very cool because I’m First Nations. I liked the canoes and the people’s costumes. It was interesting when they spoke their own Language. I felt happy to be there in person I saw the news people on the docks. That was important because we showed everyone that there were many people there maybe thousands. I felt happy to find out but there were 6-8 boats there because it was cool to have everyone right there.
