The Role of Canada’s Museums and Archives in Reconciliation

My latest post, The Role of Canada’s Museums and Archives in Reconciliation, can be seen over at activehistory.ca.  The post looks at the TRC executive summary of the final report and calls to action in relation to museums and archives.  The report features 94 recommendations to facilitate reconciliation and address the legacy of residential schools, including a set of recommendations relating specifically to museums and archives.  The calls to action include a focus on access, best practices, commemorative projects, public education, and compliance with the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples.
