“Rights and Responsibilities in a Time of Reconciliation”

In 2015, the Truth and Reconciliation Commission issued Principles of Reconciliation and 94 Calls to Action. At the heart of these Calls to Action is the need for true understanding of these new responsibilities and to fully embrace inherent rights of Indigenous people. In his talk, Ry Moran will explore the central role of the National Centre for Truth and Reconciliation in these rights and responsibilities in this era of reconciliation.

About the speaker: As the first Director of the National Centre for Truth and Reconciliation (NCTR), it is Ry Moran’s job to guide the creation of an enduring national treasure – a dynamic Indigenous archive built on integrity, trust and dignity. Ry came to the Centre directly from the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada (TRC). On the TRC’s behalf, he facilitated the gathering of nearly 7,000 video/audio-recorded statements of former residential school students and others affected by the residential school system. He was also responsible for gathering the documentary history of the residential school system from more than 20 government departments and nearly 100 church archives – millions of records in all. Ry is a proud member of the Métis Nation of Manitoba.

The lecture will be preceded by a reception from 4:30-5:30 p.m. in the Richcraft Hall Atrium.
