National Day of Truth and Reconciliation: Maamwii Bimose “Walking Together” with Indigenous People
- September 30: 1pm-6pm
- 252 Dalhousie St
Together as a community we are on this journey of reconciliation. The truths of families and survivors of Canadian residential schools have left permanent scars on communities and our nation.
In the spirit of healing and reconciliation, we will gather in King’s Navy Yard Park & Park House Museum from 1pm-6pm on September 30.
Join us to learn more about Indigenous culture. Watch demonstrations of dancing, drumming and storytelling. Learn and listen from Elders and motivational speakers from the community.
Shop at the Indigenous vendors selling unique arts, crafts and gifts, and sample Indigenous food at the Park House Museum.
