Reconciliation: Theory to Practice

What does reconciliation mean? Is reconciliation possible?

Come listen to Julie Steinhauer, Jesse Lipscombe, and Lana Whiskeyjack talk about the collaborative film-making that has become a powerful legacy of Dr. Vince Steinhauer, a nêhiyaw leader and scholar, who led with his heart and left instructions of how to create better relations between settlers and Indigenous peoples.

Dr. Vince Steinhauer of Saddle Lake Cree Nation led a SSHRC research project to answer the above questions. He collaborated with Indigenous scholars and led community teach-ins in St. Paul, Alberta, which has had a long history of racial tensions with surrounding First Nations communities. The research was grounded in ceremony, and a position paper written from the Indigenous worldview was translated into a film collaboration. During the film collaboration with director Jesse Lipscombe, Dr. Steinhauer suddenly left to the spirit world and his wife Julie Steinhauer stepped in to assist where she could, knowing Vincent’s direction.
