Recognizing National Day for Truth and Reconciliation With a Day to Listening
Friday September 30th marks National Day for Truth and Reconciliation. To recognize the day, media outlets across the country, including ROCK 95, have partnered with the Gord Downie & Chanie Wenjack Fund (DWF) for A Day to Listen 2022.
Throughout the day, we will hear stories from Indigenous youth and Elders all based on this year’s theme of “Messages of Hope.”
This is a day to listen.
So in that spirit, our on-air team will be stepping aside to allow these stories to take centre stage.
The programming will focus on highlighting 4 streams:
- Cultural reclamation
- Language resurgence
- Art practice
- Land-based learning narratives
We’re going to learn what we can do as a country, as we move forward, by highlighting and featuring Indigenous Peoples who are engaged, working, and living within these streams and show how we can continue to move forward with hope for future generations of Indigenous and non-Indigenous people.
A few of the people we will hear from include: Mimi O’Bonsawin, Peatr Thomas, Waubgeshig Rice, Terri Cardinal, and George Desjarlais.
