Roberta believes Education is the key to transformation in the relationship between Canada and Indigenous Peoples if there is to be true reconciliation. She calls on us to make constructive change in order to better our economic circumstances. She outlines how Education of Indigenous youth would addresses Canada’s growing shortage of skilled labour, while making the case that Education is a sustainable investment which exponentially increases benefits over future generations and in a short time pays for itself.
Jamieson explores the ins and outs of alternative conflict resolution. Is it possible to apply ADR in our schoolyards, families, between people and corporations? ADR has much to offer in creating solid foundations for future relationships while resolving the conflicts of today.

It is not easy to speak or hear about the wrongs that have been committed against Indigenous Peoples, but Roberta Jamieson does that with mastery and authenticity. She tells a difficult and painful story while putting forward a cathartic vision that Canadians can work together to make a difference for future generations. One where each diverse individual, each diverse group, has the opportunity and freedom to make their distinct contribution to Canada and the world. She inspires each audience member to play a role in making that original promise good.[/nsb]
