Reconciliation Begins with Education
Last month, the entire staff at The Stop came together for a full-day training session with the Ontario Federation of Indigenous Friendship Centres. The training represented an important step toward The Stop’s commitment to reconciliation, and we hope will work to strengthen relations with our Indigenous partners and communities.
Today, on National Indigenous Peoples Day, The Stop would like to give thanks – Miigwetch – and recognition to our partners and friends at NaMeRes, Miziwe Biik, Anduhyaun, Naadmaagit Ki (NKG), Titiesg Wîcinímintôwak (Bluejays Dancing Together Collective), and The Children’s Peace Theatre (Project Future).
We invite you to take a minute out of your day to learn about these organizations and the people behind them:
- Miziwe Biik
- Naadmaagit Ki
- Titiesg Wîcinímintôwak / Bluejays Dancing Together Collective
- Project Future
- Ontario Federation of Indigenous Friendship Centres
