"Troubling Truth and Reconciliation in Canadian Education is both practical and highly sophisticated in its collective approach to examining and evaluating factual and authentic teaching surrounding Indigenous history, culture, and shared generational settler responsibility. At times the truths being explored can be uncomfortable, but the pain associated with analyzing these inconvenient realities speaks to the necessity for confronting them actively. As Canadians continue to wrestle with the larger implications of ‘reconciliation,’ this is an engaging and provocative read that adds texture and nuance to an integral and fundamental part of defining a Canadian national identity." Regan Treewater, Alberta Native News, September 27, 2022

"This is crucially important work at this time, as universities, provincial education boards, and school districts grapple with their responses to the TRC. The contributors to Troubling Truth and Reconciliation in Canadian Education continue dialogues around reconciliation, decolonization, and Indigenization in schools at every level across Canada and offer real and actionable insights for educational leaders and teachers.” Shannon C. Leddy, University of British Columbia


“Troubling Truth and Reconciliation in Canadian Education is a significant contribution in this era of the post-TRC, the Calls to Action, the MMIWG inquiry report, and the ongoing difficulties and legacies of systemic racism/colonialism against Indigenous peoples in Canadian institutions.” Lisa Korteweg, Lakehead University
