I sat up extra straight when I discovered that one of the “teachers” of the MOOC on Reconciliation I’m taking through UBC right now (it’s free, and you can still sign up), is from Seton Lake. Gerry Oleman is a member of the St’at’imc Nation from Tsal’alh (Shalalth B.C.)
I was excited to hear from a local First Nations man.
But I didn’t expect to be so moved.
I can’t do justice to what he shared, and the way he shares it, by paraphrasing, or quoting, or even transcribing his offering here.
It’s had such an impact on my way of thinking.
Just this 20 minute video.
