Conversations of Hope and The Meaning of Reconciliation
Former AFN Chief Phil Fontaine will guide us on how to have conversations of hope within an understanding of reconciliation for our times. Join us as we continue the dialogue inspired by The Truth & Reconciliation Commission of Canada’s ninety-four calls to action. Phil Fontaine served as National Chief of the Assembly of First Nations (AFN) for an unprecedented three terms. Under his leadership, the AFN negotiated both the Kelowna Accord and the Indian Residential Schools Settlement Agreement. Fontaine has received many honours and awards, including the National Aboriginal Achievement Award, the Order of Canada, and numerous honorary doctorates.
