“It is essential to commemorate National Day for Truth and Reconciliation because it honours all those still suffering from the intergenerational trauma caused by these injustices to the Indigenous people. It commemorates all those who are still suffering from these injustices, those who never made it home, all of our communities, traditions, teachings, and languages which have been taken from us. This day allows all Canadians to be informed about the tragedies which Indigenous people faced and still face. This day encourages reconciliation between Indigenous people and non-Indigenous people.” – Mackenzie, Indigenous Student Trustee
