Invitation to “Indian Residential Schools: Perspectives of Blackfoot Confederacy People” webinar

Dear Arthritis Community Member,

During his visit to Canada July 25 to 29, 2022, Pope Francis is expected to deliver a fulsome apology on Canadian soil for the Catholic Church’s role in running Indian Residential Schools, which would address Call to Action #58 from the Truth and Reconciliation Commission Report (2016). 

Arthritis Consumer Experts invites you to a special webinar featuring a 60-minute presentation by Dr. Terri-Lynn Fox, who will share her experiences as an Indigenous Scholar and woman of the Blood Tribe and present her research on Indian Residential Schools, followed by a 30-minute moderated question and answer session. Participants will learn actions individuals and organizations can meaningfully take towards Truth and Reconciliation. 

Date: Wednesday, July 20, 2022, 9am to 10:30am PDT (90 minutes)

Speaker: Dr. Terri-Lynn Fox, Indigenous Scholar
