Inspiring men and women have been weaving profound change across Canada - contributing to the process of Truth and Reconciliation. Among the survivors of the residential schools, not only did they have the courage to resist oppression, to overcome trauma, anger and the destructive representations of themselves they had to cope with, but also the strength to engage in reconciliation and revitalisation of their cultures and languages. This article is a tribute to these weavers of hope and new relationships, and sheds light on their decisive role in leading and empowering transformation. In the perspective of sharing the testimony of such weavers, this article is dedicated to the life and experience of Anicinabe hereditary Chief T8aminik Rankin and Kokom Marie-Josée Tardif, Elders from the Algonquin tradition.
