Anglican Archbishop apologizes for residential school oppression
Anglican Archbishop of Canada Fred Hiltz came before a full house gathered at the Mohawk Chapel at Six Nations this weekend to apologize for the Anglican participation in the residential school system.
Hiltz said the church must take action to remedy the harm they inflicted upon generations of indigenous people.
Hiltz announced the church will be answering to the recommendations of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission Report – calling upon the church community in Canada to begin reading aloud the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples during National Aboriginal Day and committing to anti-racism training.
