Norma MacDonald - Burn the tapes
Danny Michel - Sunset Sea
|In 2015, Patricia Stirbys and Peter Croal had a dream of planting a forest with 6000 trees representing the lives of each First Nation, Inuit and Métis child that was lost during their attendance at a Canadian residential school, and 1200 trees to represent the 1200 (plus) murdered and missing Indigenous women and girls in Canada. When Peter and Patricia shared their dream with the National Center for Truth and Reconciliation, it was determined that NCTR would act as a host organization for The National Healing Forest, but that the dream needed to be nurtured and carried forward by communities and territories across Canada. Peter and Patricia will be speaking about The National Healing Forest at The Table Community Food Center in Perth on Thursday, January 12 from 6:30-8 pm.
