Indigenous History and the Impacts of Residential Schools on Indigenous Peoples

Join the Society’s Truth and Reconciliation Working Group for a cultural competency education session focused on Indigenous History and the Impacts of Residential Schools on Indigenous Peoples.

Learning the true history of the residential school system and how this system continues to have intergenerational impacts on Mi’kmaw communities, creates opportunities for Nova Scotians to learn about the Mi’kmaq and their unique history in Canada. It promotes an understanding of the life circumstances of the Mi’kmaw and how we can respectfully engage those who have been impacted by the residential school system.

This free education session, offered both in person at the Society’s office or via webinar, is a great opportunity to add to your professional development plan.

Register by logging in to the NSBS member portal at http://bit.ly/TRC-Education-0220. Please indicate whether you will attend online or in person. If you attend online you will receive an email prior to the event with a link to the Zoom meeting.

Lunch is provided (breaking between 12:00-1:00 PM)
