Less than 500 years ago, the only people living in Canada were the First Peoples. The Indigenous people of this land have a rich history and unique relationship with our country, one that includes chapters of hurt but also new chapters of healing.
Together, through tangible acts of love and hope-filled testimony, we can be a blessing to Indigenous communities across the land! Partner with us today.
2021 RV Re-Ignite Hope Tour
Through your prayers and generous support, First Peoples Voices was able to journey and go on the Re-Ignite Hope Tour. As you responded to the need, Crossroads was able to cover expenses for our media Mentorship graduates.
The video, produced by Crystal, will give you a sense of our journey. Great laughter and joy, along with deep crying and pain. Our three weeks packed into eight minutes!
Help Bring Great Joy to Indigenous Communities this Christmas!
I am so excited to tell you that this will be our best Christmas Gift Campaign to date thanks to our wonderful partners!
Finding Truth in Reconciliation
This month has been extremely profound. I sat glued to my computer and watched reporters in Rome cover the historic exchange between Pope Francis and Indigenous delegates from across Turtle Island (North America). Although the official apology was long-overdue, Indigenous trailblazers continued to communicate ‘it’s never too late to do the right thing’. The Pope’s detailed apology was another milestone on this collective path to reconciliation.
Orange Shirt Day – Every Child Matters
On the first day at residential school, survivor Phyllis Jack Webstad wore her shiny new orange shirt, bought by her grandmother. She loved it! However, it was taken from her as a six-year old girl at the school. September 30th was chosen because it is the time of year in which children were taken from their homes and forced onto a plane, bus or truck and sent to residential schools.
