A member of the Birdtail Sioux Dakota Nation, and an athlete who believes in the power of movement as medicine, UM law student Tréchelle Bunn founded a healing walk in July 2021 which has since grown into the Reconciliation Run, Canada's first National Day for Truth and Reconciliation Half Marathon.
The third annual National Day for Truth and Reconciliation will take place on September 30. There are many ways you can observe the day, with opportunities both on and off campus to engage in learning and reflection and to honour the healing journey of residential school Survivors.
With Indigenous Homecoming taking place this week, September is also a time to celebrate the success of UM alumni. Over the years, more than 600 students have graduated from the Access Program. These accredited professionals now successfully share their hard-earned skills in communities all across Canada and also right here at UM.
