Minds On: Thinking About Reconciliation
Activity 1: Understanding Reconciliation (10 minutes)
This is your opportunity to use YOUR VOICE AS POWER!
You have been learning how to code a song in EarSketch—remixing stems from Indigenous artists that use your “voice” to promote equity! Now that you have more skills and knowledge, you will be able to build a song (or finalize your existing song) to submit for the final competition (if you wish).
There are two entry categories - Indigenous students and student Allies.
Let's have a final look at some materials first before we code our final song and submit!
Call to Action Challenge
In small groups of 3-4, discuss each of these questions. You can share what you talked about with the class after each question.
- What have you learned about the Inequalities and injustices that Indigenous people have faced and continue to face in Canada?
- How are these injustices similar and different to the injustices faced by African American people in the United States?
- What are some examples of initiatives aimed at promoting equality in Canada? (Example: Orange Shirt Day)
- What does Reconciliation mean to you?
