Honouring the Truth, Reconciling for the Future: Summary of the Final Report of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada
The Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada spent six years travelling to all parts of Canada to hear from Indigenous peoples who had been taken from their families as children, forcibly if necessary, and placed for much of their childhoods in residential schools. This volume is a summary of the discussion and findings contained in the Commission’s final multi-volume report.
In cities and towns across Canada, Indigenous girls are being hunted, harassed, and criminalized by local law enforcement agents and the Royal Canadian Mounted Police. These normalized outbreaks of state control are reflective of Indigenous girls’ daily realities embedded within the structure of an ongoing settler colonial social context that has strategically invented the criminal justice system to secure and maintain settler sovereignty.
