Truth and Reconciliation Week: Roots of Growth Memorial

This event is from the archives of The Notice Board. The event has already taken place and the information contained in this post may no longer be relevant or accurate.

This event is part of a series of events and activities to recognize Truth and Reconciliation Week from September 25-28, 2023.

Please join the University of Lethbridge in recognizing the lives lost and survivors of residential schools in Southern Alberta. This event is a student-led initiative that aims to bring our community together to heal and reconcile.

In 2022, four trees were planted across campus in honour of the resilience and strength of Indigenous Peoples and all affected by residential schools. This is something that should have been done long ago, because there is no reconciliation without truth. This day is to bring peace and growth in a new direction and to initiate bridging a cultural gap in our community. Read more about the Roots of Growth launch.

Please join as student leads speak to the project and you are invited to tie an orange ribbon on a tree. All students, staff and faculty are welcome to attend.

Date and Time: Wednesday, September 27 from 2-2:30 p.m.

Location: The Grove (weather permitting). In the event of inclement weather, this event will be held in the Iikaisskini Gathering Centre (W650).
