Could a 20 minute video completely change your way of thinking? It did mine.

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.

    I have previously linked this amazing video to the last part of a summer class on teaching for Truth and Reconciliation. It is coming up as private and unavailable. Is there a way to gain access to it to share with my Education students?

      I noticed that recently, too, and was wondering the same thing. I’m sorry I don’t have an answer to that. It was provided by UBC as part of their MOOC on reconciliation. I wonder if reaching out directly to them for permission or access might be a possiblity?
