Lessons from the Land 

ReFrame is proud to partner with the New Canadians Centre on the second annual "Lessons from the Land" program, a day of in-person programs designed to help us engage with Canada Day by reflecting on our relationship with the land and Indigenous peoples.

In addition to these two powerful films, the New Canadians Centre invites you to join our community for a day of learning on Friday July 1, 2022 from 9:00AM - 3:30PM at Beavermead Pavilion (2011 Ashburnham Drive in Peterborough).

As the Chair of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission, Senator Murray Sinclair was a key figure in raising global awareness of the atrocities of Canada’s residential school system. With determination, wisdom and kindness, Senator Sinclair remains steadfast in his belief that the path to actual reconciliation between Indigenous and non-Indigenous people requires understanding and accepting often difficult truths about Canada’s past and present. Alanis Obomsawin shares the powerful speech the Senator gave when he accepted the WFM-Canada World Peace Award, interspersing the heartbreaking testimonies of former students imprisoned at residential schools. The honouring of Senator Sinclair reminds us to honour the lives and legacies of the tens of thousands of Indigenous children taken from their homes and cultures, and leaves us with a profound feeling of hope for a better future.
