Northern Truth and Reconciliation gathering in Inuvik
Finding reconciliation…that’s the hope of many people who attended the Truth and Reconciliation gathering in Inuvik last week. Hundreds of residential school survivors from across the north gathered to share their stories. Including more than a dozen inuit from Labrador. For this group the visit was particularly poignant as the federal government still does not recognize boarding schools in Labrador. Nunatsiavut’s Finance Minister Danny Pottle spoke about this during a sharing circle. He started off by talking about his own experience.
