Truth and Reconciliation Keepsake

Learn the Truth; Practice Reconciliation.
This keepsake represents a past that must never be forgotten, and a better future we can all build together.
The Residential Schools Crisis Line is available 24 hours a day for anyone experiencing pain or distress or thoughts of past abuse. Please call 1-866-925-4419.

The Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada says that reconciliation “is a process of healing relationships that requires public truth sharing, apology, and commemoration that acknowledge and redress past harms.” It is in this spirit that we have worked with Residential, Day and Boarding school Survivors and First Nations, Inuit and Métis artists to create this Truth and Reconciliation Keepsake.

For a period of more than 150 years, First Nations, Inuit, and Métis Nation children were taken from their families and communities to attend government-funded church-run residential schools. More than 150,000 children were taken away with a goal of destroying their culture and ways of life. Thousands never came home.

Neglect and abuse were widespread at these schools. Indigenous peoples are still living with the impacts of this harm. This Truth and Reconciliation Keepsake honours the Survivors and the children who never returned.

The beautiful and richly symbolic imagery, reflective of First Nations, Inuit and Métis teachings and traditional art forms demonstrate that these cultures remain vibrant in spite of the harms inflicted by the residential school era.

Its dual-sided design acknowledges the intergenerational impacts of Residential, Day and Boarding schools, and it invites reflection about the impact of those schools, the conditions that created them, and how people living in Canada can turn that reflection into acts of reconciliation.

All proceeds from the sale of the Truth and Reconciliation Keepsake will support the work of the Na-mi-quai-ni-mak Community Support Fund (Na-mi-quai-ni-mak is an Anishinaabemowin name meaning “I remember them”). Established by the National Centre for Truth and Reconciliation, Na-mi-quai-ni-mak is a community fund that assists Survivors and their communities carry out healing, wellness, and commemoration activities.
