Back-to-backun with the UNPFII pre-meeting there is unique opportunity to take part in training focusing on indigenous rights and reconciliation. Some of the world leading practitioners on indigenous reconciliation will be available for peer-training. The training is also opportunity to engage more with the Sámi Parliaments and Truth and Reconciliation Processes and their lessons learned.
I participated to the launch of Mary Hoch Center for Reconciliation (at GMU S-CAR) in New York City Marble Collegiate Church on Oct 29th, 2019. Father Michael Lapsley gave key note speech with Anne Nuorgam representing the UN Permanent Forum for Indigenous People. A panel followed with Professor Marc Gopin, PhD student Naj Mangoush and Secretary General Elect Azza Karam giving wonderful insight on reconciliation.
