Reflections on Reconciliation

Reconciliation between Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples in Canada means different things to different people. Is it demonstrating compassion and understanding about the impact of colonialism on Indigenous peoples? Or is it about working in solidarity with Indigenous peoples on issues of justice and equity and developing relationships of respect and trust? Is reconciliation truly possible? What will it take? And what can Unitarians do to work towards reconciliation?
