Speaking Our Truth: A Journey of Reconciliation by Monique Gray Smith
Canada’s relationship with its Indigenous people has suffered as a result of both the residential school system and the lack of understanding of the historical and current impact of those schools. Healing and repairing that relationship requires education, awareness and increased understanding of the legacy and the impacts still being felt by Survivors and their families. Guided by acclaimed Indigenous author Monique Gray Smith, readers will learn about the lives of Survivors and listen to allies who are putting the findings of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission into action.

I wanted to know more about the First peoples and this book did just that.
Speaking our truth is a good book if you need information it was also very sad to hear that they were abused for who they were and were also called names.
This is an okay book it was not my favourite book. I felt that I did not really know what was going on most of the time. I felt that it sometimes went on rabbit trails.
this book had a good meaning but definitely not my style it was pretty long. Some parts were interesting though.
This book was pretty cool. I loved reading the story's of people who stood up for their rights. It did have a lot of information and I got bored at one point. I would this book a 3 1/2 out of 5.
