UAlberta PhD student and postdoctoral fellow list 150 acts of reconciliation that could be incorporated as everyday practices.
August 4, 2017
Feeling that Canada 150 festivities were taking away from the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s calls to action, and realizing her resistance towards the sesquicentennial was closing off potential opportunities for conversations around the plight of Canada’s Indigenous people, Crystal Fraser acted.
Now the University of Alberta history PhD student wants Canadians to act too—150 times in fact.
Fraser, in collaboration with postdoctoral history researcher Sara Komarnisky, thought up and published 150 acts of reconciliation today, one for each of the remaining 150 days of 2017.
