The symposium "Being on the Land: Histories at the Confluence" grew out of a cultural event organized at the Mir Centre for Peace one year previously. Although time had passed, the issues, and questions, remained the same: what will the land itself tell us if we listen carefully, with empathy and commitment to historical truth; in what ways can we understand the stories of the land's first inhabitants, the Aboriginal peoples, as they joined with the history of later utopian seekers such as the Doukhobors; what points of intersection might exist between historical truth and justice and the demands of reconciliation and cultural healing?
Doukhobors -- History.
