"Three indigenous people of faith have extolled the value of multi-faith work in Canada, saying it not only provides opportunities to learn from others but also promotes healing and reconciliation among peoples and communities. But they also acknowledged the need to do more to develop and strengthen relationships between aboriginal and non-aboriginal faiths and spiritual traditions. The Rev. Andrew Wesley, Lori Ransom and Dawn Maracle on Aug. 14  spoke about 'Indigenous Experience and Diversity' at the North American Interfaith Network conference held at the University of Toronto's Multi-Faith Centre". "Ransom, for her part, provided conference participants with an overview of the work of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada (TRC), where she is senior advisor responsible for churches and other faith communities. The TRC's mandate is broader that the residential schools; part of its role is to help Canada discern a path to reconciliation between indigenous and non-indigenous people, Ransom said".
