  • From the Heart: Enter into the journey of reconciliation, a 2013 theatre production created by an ensemble of non-Indigenous Canadians telling transformative stories that have deepened the understanding about the lived experiences of Indigenous peoples in Canada. The show encouraged dialogue about what it might mean for non-Indigenous people to take responsibility for learning more about Indigenous history as a step toward standing in solidarity with First Nations, Métis, and Inuit people.
