Edge of the Bush logo

LEF is grateful for the work we continue doing with Dr Hopi Martin as part of our commitment to learning with and from Indigenous Peoples. Hopi has taken some time to compile a list of events taking place in recognition of Truth and Reconciliation Week. With multiple ways to engage, we hope there is something here that is of interest to your and/or your family.
