Truth and Indignation : Canada's Truth and Reconciliation Commission on Indian Residential Schools, Paperback Book

Truth and Indignation : Canada's Truth and Reconciliation Commission on Indian Residential Schools Paperback

Part of the Teaching Culture: UTP Ethnographies for the Classroom series

Description

Truth and Indignation offers the first close and critical assessment of a Truth and Reconciliation Commission as it is unfolding.

Niezen uses interviews with survivors and oblate priests and nuns, as well as testimonies, texts, and visual materials produced by the Commission to raise important questions: What makes Canada's TRC different from others around the world?

What kinds of narratives are emerging and what does that mean for reconciliation, transitional justice, and conceptions of traumatic memory?

What happens to the ultimate goal of reconciliation when a large part of the testimony-that of nuns, priests, and government officials-is scarcely evident in the Commission's proceedings?

Thoughtful, provocative, and uncompromising in the need to tell the "truth" as he sees it, Niezen offers an important contribution to our understanding of TRC processes in general, and the Canadian experience in particular.
