Immersive Stories: Truth and Reconciliation Community of Practice

Truth and Reconciliation Community of Practice

About the Truth and Reconciliation Community of Practice

The Truth and Reconciliation Community of Practice (TRCP) is an RRC Polytech learning community that creates opportunities for participants to extend and apply their learning, and to take action to advance Truth and Reconciliation and anti-racism.

Participation in the TRCP will involve a commitment of 8 hours throughout Fall 2022, which includes both group discussion, facilitated in circle, and small group or partner discussions, around guided questions that relate to both Truth and Reconciliation, anti-racism, and participating in the Immersive Stories. These discussions will guide participants on a journey through the Medicine Wheel, and will provide experiential learning around Indigenous teachings. Participation in the TRCP will culminate in a group feast, to celebrate the truth learned and reconciliACTION taken over the course of the term, as well as to plan next steps.  

Outcomes of participation in the TRCP include: 

  • Demonstrating a commitment to Truth and Reconciliation, and the pursuit of EDI. 

  • Experiencing and understanding Indigenous teachings, such as circle teaching and the Medicine Wheel. 

  • Identifying meaningful opportunities for individual action and engagement relating to reconciliation, and the enhancement of inclusion at RRC Polytech. 

Facilitators of this event are Joanna White, Indigenous Curriculum & Cultural Advisor for the Department of Community Services, and Kelsey Shay Regnier, Program Manager, Department of Community Services.

The TRCP aligns with Commitment 2 of the RRC Polytech Strategic Plan, to “commit to Truth and Reconciliation... [and] pursue equity, diversity, and inclusion in everything we do.”
