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

The lecture will be preceded by a reception beginning at 4:30 p.m. in the Richcraft Hall Atrium. It takes place during Carleton’s annual Institute on the Ethics of Research with Indigenous Peoples.

About Ry Moran

As the first director of the National Centre for Truth and Reconciliation, Moran guides the creation of an enduring national treasure – a dynamic Indigenous archive built on integrity, trust and dignity. Moran came to the centre directly from the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada, where he facilitated gathering nearly 7,000 recorded statements of former residential school students and others affected by the residential school system. He was also responsible for gathering the documentary history of the system from more than 20 government departments and nearly 100 church archives – millions of records in all. Moran is a proud member of the Métis Nation of Manitoba.
