In response to the Primate’s call for every parish in Canada to read aloud the United Nations Declaration of the Rights of Indigenous Peoples on June 21, 2016—the National Aboriginal Day of Prayer—or on the Sunday closest, the Rev. Canon Greg Smith created a document offering guidelines for a Ceremony of Solidarity. The document outlines the headings of each the UN Declaration’s 46 articles pertaining to Indigenous rights, and is accompanied by a reading of the Ten Principles guiding the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada, the mandate given by the Primate, and prayers from Indigenous Ministries resources.
Resources listed here have come from a wide variety of sources. For more information or if you have any questions about this resource, please contact the document provider listed below.
