“When people know better, they do better. Even myself, as an Indigenous parent, as an Indigenous person to Indigenous children, we all make mistakes as parents. So I think that’s the number one thing is know that you’re going to make mistakes, and that it’s about how you recover from those mistakes, and how you forgive yourself and move forward to do something differently. So when it comes to learning, or teaching your children about reconciliation, it’s having the courage to do that. So to be bold and courageous, and say to your kids, you know what, I’m not really 100% sure about this, but this is what I’ve read, maybe we could do a research this.”
