Residential Schools and Reconciliation by Jim Miller

The U of S Canada 150 Project will host three Indigenous-related book launches. The first is on Oct. 10:
Residential Schools and Reconciliation: Canada Confronts Its History
by Jim Miller ( professor emeritus, history and former Canada Research Chair in Native-Newcomer Relations)

When: Tuesday, Oct. 10 at 4:30 pm
Where
: Convocation Hall

Since the 1980s, successive Canadian institutions, federal governments and Christian churches have attempted to grapple with the legacy of residential schooling through official apologies, the Royal Commission on Aboriginal Peoples, the Indian Residential Schools Settlement Agreement, and the Truth and Reconciliation Commission. In this unique, timely, and provocative work, award-winning author Jim Miller asks Canadians to accept that the root of the problem was Canadians like them in the past who acquiesced to aggressively assimilative policies.
