INDIGENOUS RESOURCES CIRCLE

Welcome to the CWD dedicated page for indigenous resources made available to all ministries across the district. 

94 CALLS TO ACTION

The Truth and Reconciliation Commission ran from 2008 to 2015 and provided those directly or indirectly affected by the legacy of the residential schools policy with an opportunity to share their stories and experiences. The final report was released detailing 94 Calls to Action. 


The National Day for Truth and Reconciliation is a direct response to Call to Action 80, which called for a federal statutory day of commemoration.

CWD LAND ACKNOWLEDGEMENT

We would like to acknowledge that the Nazarene churches of the Canada West District are located on the traditional territories of many of Canada’s First Peoples and the homeland of the Metis Nation.



These territories include the land of Treaties 1 and 2 in Manitoba; Treaties 4 and 6 in Saskatchewan; and Treaties 6 and 7 in Alberta.



We recognize the enduring presence of Indigenous peoples connected to these lands. We are grateful for the opportunity to gather on this territory and work in these communities, and we commit ourselves to the work of reconciliation with First Nations people.
