The Touchstones of Hope is a set of principles to guide a reconciliation process within all aspects of society and is the basis for a respectful and meaningful relationship between Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples. The success of the movement rests on the fact that it is a community driven process that fosters relationships and provides opportunities to have respectful conversations about reconciliation. This includes concrete steps for moving forward together so that all Indigenous children, youth and their families are healthy and living with dignity.
