Notes
"A former student of the Elkhorn Indian Residential School, set up by an Anglican missionary in 1888, has donated $50,000 -- $40,000 of which was his entire settlement from the revised residential schools agreement -- to an inner city homeless shelter in Winnipeg. 'I'm hoping for the best for the people', William Woodford, 85, told reporters who heard of his generous act and showed up at Siloam Mission when he delivered the bank draft on March 2 [2009]". "In a related development, the Anglican Church of Canada, along with other churches, is urging the government to declare the month between May 26 and June 21 (National Aboriginal Day), as a month of healing and reconciliation to help Canadians focus on the 150-year legacy of forced assimilation through the Indian residential schools". "Meanwhile, former students and representatives of the churches that are signatory to the revised Indian Residential Schools Settlement Agreement (IRSSA) gathered for a round table meeting in Ottawa March 23 [2009] and agreed to the importance of having a ceremony for the new Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC) members who will be appointed. Esther Wesley, indigenous healing co-ordinator of the Anglican church's partnerships department who attended the meeting, said the view was expressed that the IRSSA is 'more than an agreement; it is a spiritual covenant' that involved aboriginal communities across Canada'."

"'In Peace and Friendship' is a response to those who faith or conscience compels them to understand more deeply the struggles of Aboriginal peoples in Canada. It provides an opportunity, particularly for non-Aboriginal people, to open themselves to a new perspective by exploring a relationship with the original inhabitants of this land that recognizes their unique nationhood. ....

This resource could be used as a series of weekly workshops for a local group or linked together for a 2-day conference or retreat. The first and fifth sessions assume a Christian perspective". -- p. i.
