“Rights and Responsibilities in a Time of Reconciliation” presented by Ry Moran

In 2015, the Truth and Reconciliation Commission issued Principles of Reconciliation and 94 Calls to Action. At the heart of these Calls to Action is the need for true understanding of these new responsibilities and to fully embrace inherent rights of Indigenous people. In his talk, Ry Moran will explore the central role of the National Centre for Truth and Reconciliation in these rights and responsibilities in this era of reconciliation.

Ry Moran is the first Director of the National Centre for Truth and Reconciliation (NCTR) located at the University of Manitoba. In addition to working with his team to build the Centre from the ground up, Ry continues to advocate for Survivors, truth and reconciliation with commentary in radio, print and television. Ry is a proud member of the Métis Nation.

The lecture will be preceded by a reception from 4:30-5:30 p.m. in the Richcraft Hall Atrium.

Established in 2009, the Katherine A.H. Graham Lecture on Aboriginal Policy provides a vehicle for examining a wide range of policy issues, cases, models and tools related to First Nations, Métis and Inuit communities across Canada. Under this initiative, the University annually invites a noted leader in the Aboriginal community, the non-profit sector, government or business to present a public lecture on Aboriginal policy.
