Join True North Aid in a walk towards reconciliation on the trails of Little Cataraqui Creek Conservation Area. Reflect upon Canada’s past and present relationship with Indigenous peoples and learn how to take action for a better tomorrow. During the walk, information about Canada’s history with Indigenous peoples will be available with suggestions on how to be a good ally and become part of reconciliation efforts and actions in Canada. Little Cataraqui Creek is offering FREE admission to the park. To participate in the walk, donations are requested to help with True North Aid and Good Ally Project efforts.
This is a solemn event allowing for personal introspection that brings to light the reality of Canada’s past and current relationship with First Nations, Metis, and Inuit peoples. It is an event that is designed to be a self-guided tour on one of two marked trails at Little Cat, following Canada’s chronological history of the systemic residential school history through facts, stats and quotes, allowing for one’s heart and mind to be ready to share with others the following day, Monday September 30th, Orange Shirt Day.
