“Rights and Responsibilities in a Time of Reconciliation” The 2017 Katherine Graham Lecture

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.

Historical Thinking Summer Institute
The Historical Thinking Summer Institute is designed for teachers, curriculum developers, professional development leaders, historians, museum educators and curators who want to enhance their expertise at designing history programs, courses, units, lessons, projects, or educational resources that explicitly focus on historical thinking.

Attendees of the 2017 Historical Thinking Summer Institute will participate in a variety of activities including presentations and workshops, learning activities at the Canadian Museum of History and the Canadian War Museum, discussions of readings, guest

lectures, and group work to explore six historical thinking concepts: evidence, significance, continuity & change, cause & consequence, perspective-taking, and the ethical dimension of history. For more information visit http://www.canadashistory.ca/HTSI.
