Reconciling History: How a Cemetary Breathed Life Into Reconciliation

Cindy Blackstock, Ed Bianchi and Sylvia Smith show that it is better to improve how we teach future generations, rather than trying to forget the past. Discussing the synergies between the story of Dr. PH Bryce and Duncan Campbell Scott in the early 1900s and the story of Canada's treatment of Indigenous children demonstrates that reconciliation must move beyond describing the past to learning from the past.
