The Indigenous Peoples Solidarity team gives thanks for Canadian Churches responding positively to the 94 Calls to Action of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission. These denominations are embracing the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, repenting of the historic role of Christianity in assimilation efforts, committing to make amends for the impact on Indigenous culture, land and governments.
We pray that the churches will be a prophetic voice that speaks against injustice and any agendas of government and corporation that afflict Indigenous communities around the world.
