This session will centre on an understanding of the Aboriginal (to be inclusive of First Nations, Métis and Inuit peoples as defined by the Constitution of Canada) community of Canada and the spiritual principles that are required to come to a deeper awareness and understanding. The presenters will explore how Bahá’ís can increase their understanding of Indigenous Cultural Competency and Cultural Humility. This presentation will provide an overview of the history of Aboriginal peoples in Canada using the TRC’s Reconciliation Framework.
