Each of the ‘4 Seasons of Reconciliation’ units provide the foundational primer Canadians have not yet learned in school. Each unit meet the Truth & Reconciliation 94 Calls to Action and are meant to enhance (not replace) local Indigenous knowledge. Upon completing this foundational learning, in-person connections with First Nations, Métis and Inuit Peoples and organizations are the natural next step. Online learning can’t replace the importance of being in direct contact with the Indigenous Peoples in your region and beyond. We hope these serve as a building bloc to assist with those connections and deepen the learner’s understanding of the historical and contemporary relationship between Indigenous Peoples and Canada.

Watch trailers of our new film content featured in Venice: 

Below you can view a short trailer of three reconciliation films produced by our team that will be included in the resource as bonus features in the '4 Seasons of Reconciliation' units in fall 2018. The three short documentary films are: 'Waniska - an awakening of Indigenous Knowledge', 'Reconciliation on Bay Street' & 'Douglas Cardinal - Architect of the Future'. All three films are in response to the TRC-94 Calls to Action. 

Two of these films (Waniska and Douglas Cardinal) are playing daily at Canada's official entry in the international arts festival: Venice, Italy Biennale at the Unceded Indigenous exhibition along with our multi-media videos on Treaties, Indigenous History and Residential Schools all featured in the 4 Seasons of Reconciliation unit.

** Best viewing: Depending on the speed of your internet, the videos may take a few moments to buffer and load. If this is the case, we suggest turning off the audio and allowing it to play a few moments which will trigger it to buffer. After a minute - you can simply bring the cursor back to the the start with audio and watch it while you see the grey zone on the bottom bar downloading (buffering) the rest of the video.


Across 4 Provinces:

4 Seasons of Reconciliation is currently in four provinces across Canada. We look forward to meeting the reconciliation education needs of provinces and territories across the country in french and english. With the feedback of our education partners and Indigenous organizations in each region, our goal is to infuse local Indigenous content in the PowerPoints and the videos from your regions.

Alberta Videos:

While our team was filming for three upcoming short documentaries on reconciliation this past summer, we visited Alberta and captured some of the below leaders. Here are some short highlights below. Coming soon: in collaboration with the Alberta School Board Association, a video series for the professional development unit featuring First Nations, Métis and Inuit contributions.

Our commitment to truth and reconciliation started over eleven years ago with the documentary film, 3rd World Canada and the reconciliation trips in the remote fly-in Nation of Kitchenhumaykoosib Inninuwug. This resource evolved from the multi-media educational unit created in partnership with the Aboriginal Healing Foundation and the Legacy of Hope.

The themes and narrative arc of our unit follow First Nations principles, and were drawn according to directives from our Indigenous Advisory Circle. Educators as well as organizations may benefit from our capacity to establish connections between participating organizations and Indigenous communities. Our leading partner in the '4 Seasons of Reconciliation' is the First Nations University of Canada. 

Reconciliation Education is produced by Productions Cazabon, an award-winning media & online publishing company.
