Join us for the 2014 series as we kick off the year with a dialogue on creating harmonious alliancing and true friendship among indigenous communities and immigrants and settlers.
- What does it mean to be a true ally with the Aboriginal Community?
- What are some short, medium, and long term actions "settler" Canadians can take to be allies?
- How do Canadians demonstrate solidarity with the Aboriginal community on specific issues?
