Community Association of Oak Bay: Establishing Respectful Community Relationships

Community Association of Oak Bay: Establishing Respectful Community Relationships

How do we establish respectful community relationships?

That question will be the featured topic of the Community Association of Oak Bay’s 2023 AGM on Feb. 15.

Keynote speaker Ry Moran, Associate University Librarian, Reconciliation at the University of Victoria and founding director of the National Centre for Truth and Reconciliation in Winnipeg will explore what it means to apply the principles of truth and reconciliation in our local communities, and what we can all do as individuals to work together as good neighbours on unceded territory.

Previously, Moran served as Director of Statement Gathering for the Truth and Reconciliation Commission, and later as the Director of the National Centre for Truth and Reconciliation. His role at UVic involves leading efforts to decolonize the university’s archives and collections, while integrating Indigenous ways of knowing and being into the university’s culture and deepening their commitment to respect and reconciliation.

While at the TRC, Moran helped collect nearly 7,000 video and audio statements of former residential school Survivors and others affected by the residential school system, alongside millions of records that document the residential school system from more than 20 government departments and nearly 100 church archives.

He is the host of Taapwaywin: Talking about what we know and what we believe, a podcast about memory, power, and the journey to find truth. This podcast is built around conversations with Survivors, Elders, Knowledge Keepers, and others.
