The Western University Deans invite you to join us for an afternoon of reflection, learning, and conversation in recognition of the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation.

The Faculty of Education is hosting a screening of the documentary film “The Nature of Healing”, and facilitated Q&A session with film maker, Faith Howe, and three survivors of the Mohawk Institute: Grandmother Roberta Hill, Elder John Elliot, and Elder Bud Whiteye.

Following the screening and Q&A, attendees will move to Wampum Learning Lodge for a reception with Indigenous-inspired hors d'oeuvres catered by Teykonyote Antone.

In the spirit of the making of this film, a contribution of $10.00 per attendee is strongly suggested. Proceeds from the event will be donated to directly support the completion of the Mohawk Village Memorial Park. Located on the grounds of the former Mohawk Institute at 184 Mohawk St. in Brantford, Ont., the upcoming 5-acre memorial park will consist of memorials, walking paths and decorative landscaping as well as a variety of accessible park features.
