The Courage to Listen and Speak Out

First Nations – The Courage to Meet Face to Face
At L’Arche, we are all experimenting with what it means to find “the courage to truly meet difference.” We are on this journey whether we’re encountering a new person, or group, or any culture other than our own. On May 30 and 31, 2017, a meeting was held to bring together First Nations and “immigrant” people (everyone else). One of this year’s many meetings, the gathering took place at the Notre-Dame-du-Cap sanctuary in Trois-Rivières in Quebec. We wanted to provide you with an overview of the event in honour of International Day of the World's Indigenous Peoples, which is celebrated on August 9 of each year.
