Reconciliation means education

For me as an Indigenous follower of Christ, the work of reconciliation means educating and creating awareness of the language, culture, traditions and ceremonies of Indigenous people to the non-indigenous population.  The non-Indigenous community must understand the full impacts of colonialism.  Only when the non-Indigenous community has an appreciation and acceptance of what the first inhabitants of this land (Indigenous/First Nations peoples) gave up and force-ably taken away from them then the path to reconciliation will have began.
