Reconciliation and 150+ : National Aboriginal Day and Canada Day

Lillian Howard is of Nuu-chah-nulth ancestry and is a member of the Urban Aboriginal Advisory Committee for the City of Vancouver. This committee developed the concept of 150+ to recognize that First Nations resided in what is now Canada for thousands of years prior to confederation.

On June 21 we recognize the National Aboriginal Day, and Canada Day just over a week later.  Lillian will discuss the significance of June 21 and 150+ in the context of Canada Day celebrations and the calls for action from the Truth and Reconciliation Commission.
