University of Saskatchewan, Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada
The Student Teachers Anti-Racism Society (STARS) promotes anti-racism education at the College of Education, University of Saskatchewan through the support of the College. We work collaboratively to understand, identify, and address individual and systemic racism and its interlocking forms of oppression based on gender, sexuality, ability, class, religion and other socially constructed categories. We believe that anti-racist and decolonizing education, when woven together, can create humanizing and emancipatory change for everyone.

Truth and Reconciliation resource

Hi everyone. I just saw this notice on one of my favorite blogs, Twinkle's Happy Place (a great place to find Indigenous education resources: http://twinkleshappyplace.blogspot.ca/). 
Speaking My Truth: Reflections on Reconciliation & Residential School was funded by the Aboriginal Healing Foundation and includes a variety of stories and essays including works from Richard Wagamese and Drew Hayden Taylor, as well as questions for further discussion. You can order it for free or read and download online: http://speakingmytruth.ca/  

Drawing from the Aboriginal Healing Foundation’s three-volume series Truth and Reconciliation—which comprises the titles From Truth to Reconciliation; Response, Responsibility, and Renewal; and Cultivating Canada—acclaimed veteran broadcast-journalist and host of The Next Chapter on CBC Radio Shelagh Rogers joins series editors Mike DeGagné and Jonathan Dewar to present these selected reflections, in reader format, on the lived and living experiences and legacies of Residential Schools and, more broadly, reconciliation in Canada.
