Jennifer Dockstader, Executive Director Fort Erie Native Friendship Centre speaks in Fort Erie on the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation.
She speaks on the significance of the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation. It is a day to learn about the injustices meted to Indigenous peoples of Canada.
Asked how newcomers to Canada can better understand the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation, Jennifer Dockstader said some newcomers to Canada experienced in their country of origin, the type of atrocities that the Indigenous community went through under colonization.
“If you came from a country where this sort of thing happened, it is important to understand, and have their eyes opened that you do not allow this to happen anytime now or in the future to any other people,” said Jennifer Dockstader.
