During this month in which we celebrate Indigenous History and mourn the loss of the 215 children found in an unmarked grave at the Kamloops Residental School site recently, I encourage folks to write their own letter to their MPs. Below you will find a letter with many points for writing your MP during National Indigenous History Month. Use as much as you need or want of what I have written. (Click the link below.)
Form letters and petitions are not having the desired effect.
Write from your heart. Help our governments to hear that Reconciliation with indigenous peoples is a priority for all Canadian citizens. I will be handwriting this letter and sending it in one of my hand painted watercolour cards.
