If reconciliation is the priority issue for Canada’s governments, are Indigenous women’s particular experiences of the things for which we reconcile being taken into account?  Participants will speak to some of the particularities of Indigenous women’s experiences with colonialism, and comment on how reconciliation discourse and propaganda functions to help or hinder Indigenous women.
