Winnipeg Indigenous Accord
Truth and Reconcilliation
On June 20th, 2017 we signed the Winnipeg Indigenous Accord with goals based on the Truth and Reconciliation: 94 Calls to Action http://www.trc.ca/websites/trcinstitution/File/2015/Findings/Calls_to_Action_English2.pdf
This year, RHP will open their concerts by recognizing that we are on Treaty One Territory, the birthplace of the Metis Nation. Further to that, the LGBTQ2* choral group will sing a piece composed by an indigenous person, while inviting and including an indigenous group or person to work with the choir, thus reflecting our special relationship with and honouring indigenous peoples’ right to develop and share their culture.
We are searching for feedback from our membership on this process with the following short survey.
