Launière-Mathias, the executive director of the non-profit group Puamun Meshkenu, said the seven-day adventure cultivated a sense of "collective pride.""It was teamwork. Each person travelled the kilometres that they could. When they weren't walking, they were supporting each other emotionally and spiritually," he said. "It was a reflection of our communities, our nations."
I sat down with both @Pontifex and Cardinal Pietro Parolin yesterday afternoon. We spoke about the importance of the Roman Catholic Church’s continued work with Indigenous Peoples to advance healing and reconciliation – and the need for the Church to take real, concrete action. pic.twitter.com/SJVtA8LL5P— Justin Trudeau (@JustinTrudeau) July 28, 2022
“[…] you said that reconciliation is ‘a grace that must be sought.’ To that I would also add that reconciliation is a grace that must be earned through continuous hard work and understanding.” – #GGSimon pic.twitter.com/f72tkv1huj— Governor General of Canada (@GGCanada) July 28, 2022
They painted the banner late last night, Chelsea Brunelle said. It was a bit of a last-minute decision but felt necessary. "A missing piece of reconciliation in this visit of the pope, his pilgrimage, is action."— Anna Mehler Paperny (@amp6) July 28, 2022
The banner was facing away from the Pope, toward the congregation, but they think he got the message. The Prime Minister said he raised the issue and Canadian Bishops say they're "working with the Vatican ... with the goal of issuing a new statement from the Church."— Anna Mehler Paperny (@amp6) July 28, 2022

“For decades First Nations, Inuit, and Métis have been calling on the Pope to recognize the spiritual, cultural, emotional, physical, and sexual abuse their children endured while attending these residential schools. For decades, they have been waiting for an apology.”

It was a powerful moment during the Pope’s visit to Treaty 6 on Monday, as a woman stood in her regalia and sang an emotional rendition of O Canada in Cree directly to the leader of the Catholic Church following his apology to residential school survivors. pic.twitter.com/LO3eIiT8ac— APTN News (@APTNNews) July 26, 2022

These two saved my spirit today. It has been a long week but seeing Stevie and Abigail dance by in their jingle dresses at St. Anne de Beaupré was soothing. Grateful for Indigenous women, for standing strong, for being seen. #allmyrelations . Pix by @JoleneBanning pic.twitter.com/ZMhs9jGVwU— Tanya Talaga (@TanyaTalaga) July 28, 2022

I suspect governments have been quietly lobbying the Vatican not to rescind the 15th century Discovery Bulls. The implication for property rights in the Americas would be profound.
But it really doesn't matter whether the Pope rescinds the discovery doctrine. The Canadian government could
simply repudiate the doctrine itself. In fact, the Truth and Reconciliation Commission called on the federal government to do just that. Now that Canada has committed to implementing UNDRIP, we will need to build a different foundation for property law.
Cap you are probably right. Also, I did not realize Canada could act on its own regarding the Doctrine. Yes, we need to do this. Its a journey for all of us, I think.
