Truth Before Reconciliation: A Conversation with Tanya Talaga
The Friends and Neighbours Group is pleased to partner with Laurier Brantford to present Tanya Talaga, “Truth before Reconciliation”.

A quote from Tanya Talaga’s website explains clearly why we are delighted to speak on this topic of increasing importance to our country:
Tanya is a visionary for Canada’s reconciliation journey, with many awards and recognitions to her name. Based on her bestseller All Our Relations: Finding the Path Forward, Tanya shared the message of the emergency of Indigenous suicide in Canada on the 2018 Massey Lectures. Her previous book titled Seven Fallen Feathers: Racism, Death and Hard Truths in a Northern City shared the heart-breaking story of First Nations youth killed in Thunder Bay.

The goal of the lecture series is to educate people and promote a community dialog about the former Mohawk Institute Residential School and the need for reconciliation. The building, currently under restoration, is located on the site of the Woodland Cultural Centre. The Mohawk Institute operated as a residential school from 1828 until its closure in 1970.

Save the Evidence is a fundraising campaign run by the Woodland Cultural Centre to restore the former Mohawk Institute Residential School Building, and to reopen it as an interpreted Historic Site and educational resource. As a Site of Conscience, this interpretive centre will share information about the history of residential schools in Canada, the experiences of Survivors of the schools, and the impact that the residential school system has had and continues to have on our communities.
