We are busy unbundling the paradox of "Truth and Reconciliation" in Canada. There are key differences in the activities and commitments of the non-Indigenous population and that of the Indigenous peoples across the country. What is right for one side of this paradox is not always perceived as what's right for the other side. No matter, Indigenous peoples are animating the reclamation of languages, cultures, ceremonies, and their own truths, and waiting patiently for the non-Indigenous population to do their own work and face their own truths. It is prophesied that we will come together in peace and harmony, but not until we live the teachings.
