National Native American Boarding School Healing Coalition Virtual Summit
Healing in a Time of Truth and Justice
The National Native American Boarding School Healing Coalition (NABS) is pleased to invite you to our Boarding School Healing Virtual Summit: Healing in a Time of Truth and Justice, to be held on Friday, November 19 and Saturday, November 20, 2021. Confluence board member Patsy Whitefoot will be speaking Friday.
For the second year, we are hosting a Virtual Summit to ensure that all of our elders and friends stay healthy and safe during the COVID-19 pandemic. We are grateful for the support of all our donors. Because of their generosity, we are offering complimentary registration for everyone who wishes to attend and encourage a $50 donation per day from those who wish to support this important work to understand and address the ongoing trauma caused by Indian boarding schools.
We are living through a historic moment for boarding school healing, so it is more important than ever that we gather together to hear from boarding school survivors and honor the many-faceted experiences of those who attended Indian boarding schools. Centering Truth, Justice, and Healing during our two-day Virtual Summit, we will highlight the intergenerational voices who are the heart of this movement.
This is also a time for action. We will be providing the latest updates on the bill that has been introduced into Congress for a Truth and Healing Commission on U.S. Indian Boarding Schools, including ways that you can support this crucial legislation. There is an international groundswell of support for recognizing and seeking accountability for the harms done during the assimilative Indian boarding school era—so we know we must act now.
We look forward to gathering with you in the pursuit of Healing in a Time of Truth and Justice.
