New collection – Beyond 94: Truth and Reconciliation in Canada
With National Indigenous History Month approaching, we're excited to share our new Beyond 94 collection with you.
The Truth and Reconciliation Commission was formed as a means of reckoning with the devastating legacy of forced assimilation and abuse left by the residential school system. From 2008 to 2014, the commission heard stories from thousands of residential school survivors. In June 2015, it released a report based on those hearings. From that came 94 Calls to Action – individual instructions to guide governments, communities and faith groups down the road to reconciliation. CBC’s Beyond 94 monitors the progress of that journey.
cbc.ca/beyond94 is an immersive and interactive website on the commission’s 94 Calls to Action. Created by the CBC Indigenous Unit, it highlights concrete suggestions, resources and examples of what reconciliation is, and how Indigenous and non-Indigenous Canadians can work together on the path of reconciliation. The project is a living resource as new documentaries, residential school survivor stories, ideas and community-based action around reconciliation are added. A curated selection of this content, as well as other videos on the theme of reconciliation, are featured in this curio.ca collection.
