Blair Stonechild, Histories of reconciliation

Last night in Toronto, Blair Stonechild, historian at the Indigenous University of Canada in Regina, was in Toronto talking at St. Joseph's Chapel on the University of Toronto campus about "Reconciling with Indigenous Spirituality," and referencing his recent book The Knowledge Seeker: Embracing Indigenous Spirituality.

I've been reading more about the treaty relationship and control of resources and sovereignty than about spirituality as elements in the reconciliation that is needed. Stonechild didn't directly address the connections between the two. It's complicated.  But he impressed a large audience last night.
