#ReconcileThis is a social media initiative to uplift and amplify Indigenous voices online by activating and sharing stories, languages, culture and perspectives through provocative digital performances and conversations in response to this hashtag.
In response to the confirmation of unmarked graves at the Kamloops Residential School in Tk’emlúps te Secwepemc, #ReconcileThis reflects the frustration many Indigenous people feel and poses the question: “What does reconciliation really mean?”
