Reconciliation: An Intercultural Practice Pathway

  • Amanda Strachan MacEwan University


Social workers have a unique role in the history, and in the future of reconciliation, as we have the opportunity to work closely with Indigenous, settler and new Canadian migrants from a multitude of cultural frameworks as they begin to live in this colonial landscape. I use this paper to explore the role that relationship based intercultural social work practice has in bridging the gaps between settlers, new Canadians and Indigenous peoples, and share my own experiences of intercultural learning through participation in the 2019 ahcâhk maskwa osihcikêwina (Spirit Bear Dialogues).
