Truth & Reconciliation w/ Grace Heavy Runner

Today I welcome back a previous guest on the show, Grace Heavy-Runner to talk about Reconciliation and what that means for us individually, and ultimately, on a wider scale, for the country. Grace’s view is both insightful and thought-provoking. She speaks of the crucial first step towards reconciliation—acknowledging the truth, including the pain of it, and for her, the role that grieving played in her path of healing. On this path was also reconnecting with her own and other Indigenous practices, and learning to speak out fearlessly for change.

Regardless of our cultural identity or on what side of history our ancestors may fall, Grace emphasises the importance of reconciliation as a community movement, in which we all must play a part.
