The Thompson Okanagan Tourism Association recognizes that reconciliation is not easily defined. It is not linear and does not have a clear endpoint. Reconciliation is a continuous process, a journey, that leads to improved outcomes for Indigenous Peoples, and a better understanding how history has affected your communication and relationships with Indigenous Peoples, such as the Syilx, Nlaka’pamux, and Secwépemc nations in the Thompson Okanagan region.
We must do our part to right those wrongs, heal together, and create a new future that honours the unique gifts of the Indigenous people and communities.
The workshop will include:
- A brief history of Indigenous Peoples in Canada
- ReconciliACTION Ideas
- How YOU can support ReconciliACTION
- Overview of Call 92 of the 94 Calls to Action
